Moscow officials demolish hospice founded by Mother Teresa
CWN - September 20, 2011
Authorities in Moscow have demolished a hospice that had been founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta and run by her Missionaries of Charity.
Officials brushed aside a plea by the Russian Orthodox Church to save the building; they explained that demolition was a matter of law, since the hospice did not have the proper permits.
Ironically, this week Moscow will unveil a statue of Mother Teresa.
