- Christina and son Hannock wander into Mother Teresa's canonization
- She had adopted Hannock from Mother Teresa's home 18 years ago
- This is a miracle. Mother brought me here today: Christina
Christina, 50, was holding her son and weeping.
Eighteen years ago, the Spanish woman who lives in Barcelona had adopted her son Hannock from Mother Teresa's home in Ethiopia.
"I had no idea Mother Teresa was being made a Saint today," said Christina.
"On my 50th birthday, my family gifted me a visit to Rome. I have been here a few days and today we wandered into St Peter's Square and then I saw the portrait of Mother Teresa hanging from the Vatican. This is a miracle. Mother brought me here today," she said.
Hannock, an 18-year-old tall and gangly young man, was a little embarrassed by his mother's display of emotion.
He smiled and said, "I love my mother and thank you mother Teresa for bringing us together."
Christina is a Catholic but at St Peter's Square, people from all religions stopped to listen when she told her story in broken English.
It has taken two miracles for mother Teresa to be declared a Saint. Christina and Hannock's story could well be the third.
