St. Teresa of Calcutta as a Witnessing Model

Dr. Sinto Jose Porathur

Abstract: The Catholic Church in India confronts various controversies in recent years. Analysing these controversies, the Indian Theological Association (ITA) found out that these were mainly due to the counter - witness of her members and consequently in the 43rd Annual Conference (from 25 - to 28 April 2021) ITA discussed on the theme, “The Church in India Today: Credibility and Witness”. I consider that the first means of evangelization, i. e. witness, has central role in overcoming the controversies within the Church. For promoting witness in the life of the People of God, this article suggests an inspiring witnessing model from our Indian context, namely the witnessing model of St. Teresa of Calcutta.
