Ray Flynn, former Mayor of Boston and US Ambassador to the Vatican, was recently interviewed by Aleteia, the worldwide Catholic network, about his friendship with Mother Teresa.
Flynn talks about first meeting Mother Teresa in 1982, when she came to Harvard University to deliver the commencement speech, and about her interest in the poor. She returned to Massachusetts in 1985, 1988 and again in 1995.
