Pope Francis today (March 15th) formally approved sainthood for Mother Teresa and set September 4th as the date for her canonization.
She died in 1997 aged 87 and was beatified in 2003, the first step to sainthood.
The Albanian nun and missionary was by far the most high-profile of the five candidates for sainthood considered by the Vatican panel on Tuesday.
Known across the world, Teresa was awarded the Nobel for her work with the poor, sick, old and lonely in the slums of Calcutta, one of India’s biggest cities, now known as Kolkata.
