Mass Celebrating Mother Teresa Feast and New Mother Teresa U.S. Postage Stamp To Air on CatholicTV
On September 5th, CatholicTV will air a special Mass to celebrate Mother Teresa’s feast day and will include the unveiling of a new U.S. postage stamp with her likeness on it.
The Mass will air on September 5th at CatholicTV.com and on CatholicTV cable outlets at 8PM (Eastern) and will be rebroadcast on September 6th at noon.
The Mass will take place at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. Archbishop Pietro Sambi, Apostolic Nuncio to the United States will celebrate the Mass and give the homily.
According to CatholicVoteAction.org, over 146,000 people signed a petition asking the U.S. Postmaster General to continue with plans to issue the stamp after certain groups opposed the issuance of the postage stamp.
