The Pope declares Mother Teresa to be canonized in September of 2016

The nun is believed to have committed two miracles in her life-time

Mother Teresa of Calcutta will presumably be announced a saint of the Roman Catholic Church on September 4.

Pope Francis made the announcement at the cardinals' meeting on Tuesday (March 15) while approving several other upcoming canonisations.

According to the church rules, a candidate for sainthood is believed to have committed at least two miracles. The clergy attribute two cases of miracles to Mother Teresa. One of them was a healing of a Brazilian man who suffered from viral brain infection.

His relatives prayed to the nun, and the patient recovered. Vatican medical commission claims the sudden recovery is inexplicable scientifically.

Mother Teresa was born in 1910 in what is now Macedonia. Having lead a missionary life, she died in India at the age of 87 in 1997.
