Priests Keep Saint Teresa's Work Alive in Tijuana

Who is St. Teresa of Calcutta Anyway? (Catholic Online)

Tijuana — where the push to canonize Mother Teresa began — celebrated her new sainthood earlier this month.

The Missionaries of Charity priests have carried on the nun’s legacy in the city’s most neglected corners since their center opened there in 1988, holding masses and weekly soup kitchens and tending to the ill.

“As a fruit of our evangelization of the poor here in Tijuana a community of Discipulos de Jesus Sediment (Disciples of the Thirsting Jesus) has been born,” said Father Zbigniew Szczotka of the Missionaries of Charity. “The community is a fruit of personal encounter with Jesus of those who for different reasons have ended on the street. Many of them have been deported from the United States and ended on the street … some of them suffer from different kind of addictions.”
