Monica coming from a Croatian background, had lots of love and support, and received special prayers to her. It was a difficult and stressful time for her parents, Vlad and Lilian to go through. Her family came in contact with Fr Ante Gabric, and donated clothes for the poor to be sent back to India with him. Fr Ante Gabric then told Mother Teresa about Monica and to pray for her and her family.
Bellow is a signed note from Saint Teresa, written in Croatian to Monica and her mother Lilian. It reads, "God bless you both" Mother Teresa. With Mother Teresa's prayers the family feel it had made a big impact in their lives at that time.
On the 4th September 2016, Mother Teresa had become a saint in Rome, with the help of Pope Francis. It is one historical event to see a great person like Mother Teresa becoming a Saint. She is one truly special woman. Saint Teresa is a Saint for everyone, someone who is real, with true compassion to god, and for others.
