Mother Teresa to be Made a Saint of the Roman Catholic Church - Pope Francis

The Roman Catholic Nun, Mother Theresa whose life was and still a blessing to the entire world is to be made a saint of the Roman Catholic Church at a ceremony on the 4th of September,  2016.

The announcement was made by Pope Francis at a meeting of cardinals to give the final approval to several sainthood causes.
In 2003 Pope John Paul 11 beautified her when an Indian woman who was healed of brain tumour attributed her healing to the noble peace laureate and helper of the poor.  According to the Catholic Church, one miracle is needed for beautification which is the entrance to becoming a saint.
Mother Theresa died in 1997 at the of 87 and was officially cleared for sainthood by Pope Francis December 17, 2015.
