Religious authorities, led by the Pope, will hold a canonisation ceremony for Mother Teresa in the Vatican today.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner nun dedicated her life to helping the poorest across the slums scattered around the city of Calcutta in India.

Mother Teresa died in 1997, and today’s ceremony gets underway on the eve of the 19th anniversary of her passing.
