Shenjtja e parë shqiptare, Shenjte universale e kohëve moderne, që kremtohet në mbarë botën, ku vijon të jetojë në Krishtin e gjallë, në simotrat e, sidomos në të varfërit e saj. Radio Vatikani njofton se “vlojnë përgatitjet, e jo në një fshat, qytet a komb, por kudo ngrihet një strehë e të mjerëve, vepër e Nënë Terezës. E sidomos, thënë simbolikisht, në “tri vendlindjet e saj”: në Selinë e Shenjtë, vendlindje e shpirtit; në Indi, vendlindje e misionit; në Shkup, Tiranë, Prizren, Gjakovë, në të gjitha trojet shqiptare: vendlindje e korpit e gurrë e gjakut. Sa shumë vendlindje e vende misioni pati kjo Grua e Madhe, që rroku, me krahët e saj të brishtë, mbarë botën, duke e bërë kudo të prekshme Mëshirën Hyjnore.

 Papa Pali VI e quajti “Mishërim mistik në të varfërin”; Gjon Pali II “Ikonë e misionit në shekullin XX”; Benedikti XVI “Dishepulle e vërtetë e Krishtit, shembull që tregon si duhet t’u shërbejmë të varfërve”. dhe njerëzimit.
