THE WEEK

1. Pope Francis declares Mother Teresa a saint
Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the “saint of the gutters” who spent years working among India’s most destitute, was formally canonized as a saint of the Catholic Church on Sunday in a ceremony led by Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican. “For Mother Teresa, mercy was the salt which gave flavor to her work, it was the light which shone in the darkness of the many who no longer had tears to shed for their poverty and suffering,” Francis said, describing the new saint as a “dispenser of divine mercy” who held the powerful accountable “for the crimes of poverty they created.” The service was attended by an estimated 120,000 people and included a pizza lunch for 1,500 homeless people in Mother Teresa’s name.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
