Mother Teresa To Be Declared A Saint Today

As Vatican City is about to witness the canonisation of Mother Teresa, India in particular, is thrilled to call her Saint Teresa, since this is the country she called home. The process of canonisation is a long and complicated procedure that begins in the diocese where the person lived or died. In the case of Mother Teresa, it is the city of Kolkata.
A proposer is required to spearhead the process, presenting the testimony of the requirements of sainthood to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints. In order to be declared a saint, the congregation needs to agree to the candidate having lived a virtuous life and having performed at least two miracles through the intercession of God after her death. In the case of Mother Teresa, the proposer was 46-year-old Canadian priest Father Brian Kolodiejchuk.
