Mother Teresa, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, has been canonised during a ceremony in the Vatican today.

Thousands watched as the Pope led the ceremony, during which he said: “We declare and define Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (Kolkata) 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 process of sainthood was initiated back in 2003 by the late John Paul II. Mother Teresa was beatified at that time, but two ‘miracles’ had to be attributed to her before she could attain sainthood.

According to religious authorities, Mother Teresa cured two people who suffered supposedly incurable diseases, and such miraculous feats enabled her to become a saint.
