Mother Teresa Is Becoming a Saint in September

Pope Francis announced Tuesday that Mother Teresa will be canonized as a saint on September 4. In December, Pope Francis announced that Mother Teresa would be declared 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. The now deceased Pope John Paul II beatified Mother Teresa in October 2003 and waived the requirement of waiting five years after a person’s death to pursue the path to sainthood and opened Mother Teresa’s Cause of Canonization less than two years after her death.
