“…more than just a Catholic nun with a big heart for the poor.”

New York City, N.Y., Aug 28, 2016 / 06:05 pm (CNA).- Mother Teresa’s tireless work for the poor and her relevance for global affairs will be featured at the United Nations, whose New York headquarters will host several events on her life as an unprecedented tribute to a saint of the Catholic Church.

Msgr. Leo Maasburg will be among the participants in the U.N. commemorations. He told CNA that Mother Teresa “was more than just a Catholic nun with a big heart for the poor.”

“She was a missionary and an ambassador for the sanctity of life, never growing weary of advocating for the dignity of the unborn, the sick and the dying,” he said.

Msgr. Maasburg said he believes her views on politics and society and her messages to the world’s elite “have not had the attention they would deserve.”
