Late Mother Teresa of Calcutta to be named Roman Catholic Saint, says the Vatican

Nobel laureate, late Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who dedicated her life to helping the poor, will be made a saint of the Roman Catholic Church in September 2016 after the Catholic Pope recognized her for her intercessory role in the cure of a man with multiple brain tumours.

Mother Teresa, who died in 1997 at the age of 87 and was known as the "saint of the gutters", is expected to be canonised in early September 2016.

It's not clear if the ceremony would take place in Rome or India. Teresa, who was born to Albanian parents in Skopje in Macedonia, and known across the world for her charity work, was beatified the first step towards sainthood in 2003.
