The Pope Threw A Pizza Party For Homeless To Honor Mother Teresa's Sainthood


The Pope, pizza and saints: the perfect combination.

The big man himself threw a pizza party and fed 1,500 homeless people to celebrate Mother Teresa's new saint status, Time reports.

Pope Francis made the declaration at Sunday Mass in Vatican City to honor the Catholic nun's life-long work of helping poor people in India.


He said in Latin (the sexiest of all languages),

After due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother bishops, we declare and define Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a saint, and we enroll her among the saints, decreeing that she is to be venerated as such by the whole church. Mother Teresa, in all aspects of her life, was a generous dispenser of divine mercy, making herself available for everyone through her welcome and defense of human life, those unborn and those abandoned and discarded.

Thousands of Catholics from around the world had traveled over the weekend to watch the historical announcement.

The pizzas looked pretty rad, too...
