CRUX Episode 61 - Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa was canonized by Pope Francis on Sunday, September 4, 2016. So there's a lot of talk in the media about saints. For Lutherans, this is a mixed conversation. We cling to and hold on to the saints, but we neither worship no pray to them. So what are we to do with a woman like Mother Teresa? John us for Episode 61 of The Crux of the Matter, hosted by Todd Peperkorn and Scott Stiegemeyer.
