Pope to Make Mother Teresa a Saint
Mother Teresa, a nun who dedicated her life to helping the poor in India, will become a saint on September 4, Pope Francis announced Tuesday. The date on which she will be proclaimed a saint falls on the eve of the anniversary of her death, which occurred on September 5, 1997.
In December, Francis announced that Mother Teresa would become a saint after recognizing a second miracle attributed to her: the healing of a Brazilian man with multiple brain tumors after loved ones prayed to her to heal him, the Italian Catholic bishops’ association’s official newspaper Avvenire reported. That miracle occurred after her death.
