Two world symbols of God's love

The Pope and Mother Teresa, according to the Archbishop of Kolkatta (Calcutta), speaking on the occasion of a satellite link up between the Pope and university students in Europe, India, Pakistan, Hong Kong and Philippines, that is to take place today, marking world University Day.
On the occasion of the 5th European University Day, which the Pope will preside tomorrow, there will be a satellite link-up with young people in India, Hong Kong, Pakistan and the Philippines. For young Chinese, it will almost be like a pastoral visit.

Rome (AsiaNews) – A Rosary prayer as “a bridge for universal charity” linking two “world symbols of God’s love, the Pope and the Blessed Teresa of Kolkata,” is how Mgr Lucas Sirkar, archbishop of Kolkata, described to AsiaNews the Marian prayer vigil that will be held tomorrow to celebrate the 5th European University Day, which Benedict XVI will preside.

Young Europeans as well as students from India, Hong Kong, Pakistan and the Philippines will take part in the event via satellite. At the end of the Rosary, the Pope will give student representatives the Apostolic Exhortations Ecclesia in Europa and Ecclesia in Asia.

The prayer meeting between Indian university students and the Pope will be held in the crypt of the Mother House of the Missionaries of Charity where the remains of the Blessed Teresa of Kolkata rest.
The topic of the virtual meeting will be "intellecutal charity." [Via Asianews]
