Mother Teresa to become saint

September 5, 2016

Pope Francis has officially named the world famous nun, Mother Teresa, a saint.

Mother Teresa, who died in 1997, spent her life helping poor people in the slums in India. She’s become “Saint Theresa of Calcutta” in a special ceremony.

Who was Mother Teresa?
Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in 1910, in Skopje, Macedonia, the ethnic Albanian Teresa helped the poor in India for most of her life.

She founded the Missionaries of Charity in 1950 and gained worldwide recognition for her work, including a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.
