MIAMI (AP) - Miami's skyline will be bathed in blue and white lights to mark the centennial of Mother Teresa's birth.

Buildings across downtown Miami and around the country are participating in the tribute Thursday, what would have been the nun's 100th birthday. Blue and white are the colors of Mother Teresa's order, the Missionaries of Charity.

Sites worldwide, from St. Peter's Cathedral in Belfast, Northern Ireland, to the USS Intrepid in New York, are also taking part.
