Mother Teresa Earns Sainthood


According to CNN, Mother Teresa is on her way to sainthood after Pope Francis officially recognized a second miracle by her on Friday.  The catholic will officially recognize her as a saint in September of 2016.   To qualify a person for sainthood, an attributable miracle must occur after he or she has passed away.  Pope Francis gave Mother Teresa recognition after a catholic man in Brazil with Brain Tumors prayed to her for healing.  The man was healed with no know scientific explanation shortly after it happened.  A very similar event occurred in 2003 when a woman with a stomach tumor was suddenly healed after praying to Mother Teresa.

Mother Teresa spent her life giving to others.  She even earned the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.  She moved to India and ended up opening hundreds of orphanages and shelters for the poor.  She established Missionaries of Charity, an organization dedicated to helping those in need around the world.  At the time of her death, Mother Teresa had 610 foundations working under her with foundations on all of the continents except Antarctica.

In September Mother Teresa will be the 27th person named a saint by Pope Francis.  She will join an elite group of people throughout the ages that devoted their life to Christianity.
