Miami officials say Mother Teresa's nuns lack proper license to serve poor

Catholic World News - April 05, 2013

The Missionaries of Charity have been cited by city officials in Miami for operating a soup kitchen without proper licenses.

Mother Teresa’s nuns have not obtained the proper permits for their activities, the city officials said, in a notice that drew the ire of Miami Herald columnist Daniel Shoer Roth. A lawyer for the Missionaries of Charity expressed confidence that the problem could be resolved without interrupting the sisters’ work with the poor.
