Mother Teresa is officially a saint. Before an estimated audience of 100-thousand, Pope Francis canonized Mother Teresa Sunday in a ceremony in St. Peter’s Square that drew huge crowds of the faithful.

“After due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother bishops,” the Holy Father offered. “We declare and define Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a saint, and we enroll her among the saints, decreeing that she is to be venerated as such by the whole church.”

The Albanian nun devoted her life to caring for the poor and destitute in India. She founded the Missionaries of Charity in the slums of Calcutta in 1950. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her life of service to India’s poor and dying. Now-Saint Teresa died in 1997 at age 87.
