Nobel laureate, late Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who
dedicated her life to helping the poor, will be made
a saint of the Roman Catholic Church in September
2016 after the Catholic Pope recognized her for
her intercessory role in the cure of a man with
multiple brain tumours.

Mother Teresa, who died in 1997 at the age of 87
and was known as the “saint of the gutters”, is
expected to be canonised in early September
2016.

It’s not clear if the ceremony would take place in
Rome or India. Teresa, who was born to Albanian
parents in Skopje in Macedonia, and known across
the world for her charity work, was beatified the
first step towards sainthood in 2003
