An ailing Mother Teresa handed over her global mission Thursday to an Indian-born nun who converted to Roman Catholicism after being inspired by the works of the Nobel laureate. Sister Nirmala, born of a priestly Hindu caste, was selected by a conclave of 120 nuns who deliberated for eight weeks. "Now I am happy," said Mother Teresa, 86, who guided the mission for half a century. "Pray, so that she can continue God's work."
