Pope Francis proclaimed Catholic nun Mother Teresa Calcutta a saint of the Roman Catholic Church, BBC reported.
Canonization ceremony was held in the Vatican. To listen to a solemn Mass in St. Peter's Square gathered tens of thousands of people.
The canonization became possible after the recognition of a second miracle associated with the name of Mother Teresa. The Vatican confirmed that a resident of Brazil, suffered from a brain tumor, was healed as a result of her heavenly intercession.
Recall Mother Teresa - an ethnic Albanian, was born in 1910 in Skopje, capital of Macedonia, where she spent the first 18 years of life, and then worked as a teacher in Calcutta.
