New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Sunday hailed the canonisation of Mother Teresa, saying it was a recognition of her service to the poorest of poor, the dying and destitute.

Describing the life of Mother Teresa as "an epitome of grace, compassion and love", Gandhi said that "her saintly life will forever inspire humanity to commit to the cause of those who have no voice, no community, no home, no care and no love."

Wishing the Missionaries of Charity great success, she stressed that every Indian took great pride in the life, work and sainthood of Mother Teresa and shall be always grateful for her service.

Hailing Teresa, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi tweeted, "A symbol of service and compassion. Mother Teresa showed the world the extraordinary power of love. We celebrate today that enduring legacy of love."
