St. Teresa of Kolkata

Pope John Paul II (now St. John Paul II) beatified Mother Teresa on October 19, 2003. Her beatification, the first step on the path to sainthood, was the fastest ever in the history of canonization.

In our hearts, Mother is already a saint, by virtue of her boundless devotion towards the downtrodden, irrespective of caste and creed - she has taken all into her fold. The official honour, the declaration of sainthood will take place on September 4, 2016 at St. Peter's Square, Vatican City, Rome. The living 'saint of the gutters', the ministering angel to millions, will be canonised. More
