Policies and Announcements

The First Presidency issued a statement about the September death of Mother Teresa, the Catholic nun who ministered to the poor of Calcutta, India, and elsewhere:

“The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joins with millions worldwide in mourning the death of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Her life of unselfish service is an inspiration to all the world, and her acts of Christian goodness will stand as a memorial for generations to come.

“Recognizing her special devotion to children, she lived as the Savior taught: ‘And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me’ (Matt. 18:5).

“We express our deepest condolences to the Catholic church as well as Mother Teresa’s close associates.”
