A cover from Lyon, France ...

Thanks Eric for this nice cover with stamps of World Expo 2010 and Mother Teresa ;-)

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Mother Teresa's (1910-1997) birth. Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun of Albanian ethnicity and Indian citizenship, who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata, India in 1950. For over 45 years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries. Following her death she was beatified by Pope John Paul II and given the title Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
