Mother Teresa a saint

The Daily Herald - - NATION & WORLD -

VAT­I­CAN CITY — Mother Teresa, the Catholic nun who worked on be­half of the poor in the In­dian city of Kolkata for half a cen­tury, was de­clared a saint by Pope Fran­cis on Sun­day. Nine­teen years af­ter her death at 87, the ti­tle was given to Teresa in a cer­e­mony in St Peter’s Square at­tended by hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple. The open-air Mass for Teresa was a high point of the pope’s Holy Year of Mercy, which ends in Novem­ber.
