LIVE: Pope meets homeless in memorial Mother Teresa of Calcutta

The pope visits the memorial in memory of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. 

Leaders of the country's religious communities and some of Mother Teresa's relatives will be awaiting him there. 

The event begins at 10:20 a.m., Rome time.

After a moment of silent prayer before the relics of the saint, the pope says a pray in honor of her honor. 

Pope Francis then meets more than a hundred people living in poverty and assisted by the community of the Missionaries of Charity and listens to the testimony of one of them.

He will also bless the first stone for a future shrine in honor of Mother Teresa.
