The Vatican is expected to canonize the Blessed Mother Teresa in Rome next September 4, 2016. This after Pope Francis recognized the second miracle attributed to former founder of the Missionaries of Charity based in Calcutta, India.

The road to sainthood of the beloved mother will culminate next year and still become part of the celebration of the Pope Francis’ Jubilee year of mercy.

The Congregation of the Causes of Saints acknowledged the miraculous healing of a man from Brazil with multiple brain tumors to Mother Teresa.

She was known as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta of the Roman Catholic religious sister and missionary. She was born in Skopje (now Republic of Macedonia), then part of the Kosovo Vilayet in the Ottoman Empire, into a Kosovar Albanian family. After having lived in Macedonia for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India.

Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity congregation, and now active in 133 countries. They run hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens; dispensaries and mobile clinics; children’s and family counselling programmes; orphanages; and schools.

Mother Teresa was the recipient of numerous honours, including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. In 2003, she was beatified by Pope John Paul II as “Blessed Teresa of Calcutta”.

Mother Teresa was born on August 6, 1910 and died on September 5th, 1997.
