Special prayers were held at the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata today to mark Mother Teresa's 15th death anniversary.
Prayers and floral tributes were offered at the grave of the Mother.
The Superior General of Missionaries of Charity, Sister Prema, said we are celebrating the Feast Day and the going home of Mother to Jesus.
"Today we keep the Feast Day for Mother Teresa. Since the church declared her blessed, we are celebrating this joy together with all our Missionaries of charity family. It is also the 15th anniversary of the going home of Mother to Jesus, as she called it, when she spoke about death," said Sister Prema.
