Mother Teresa was declared as a saint. The ceremony took place in front of tens of thousands of attendees at St. Peter’s Square in Rome on Sunday morning.
Mother Teresa, who dedicated her life to helping the poor in India, has thus acquired the status of saint. The ranking took place in front of tens of thousands of believers. India’s Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj was also present.
Mother Teresa, who died on September 5th, 1997, was blessed in 2003 by the late Pope John Paul. It is requiring one miracle to be Blessed.
To be canonized as a saint requires two miracles. The Catholic Church believes they can prove that Mother Teresa performed two miracles, both about healing.
