Nineteen years after her death, Mother Teresa has officially been declared a saint by the Catholic Church.
Mother Teresa, an Albanian by blood who was born in 1910, started her process of becoming a missionary at the age of 18, arrived in India at 19, and finally became a nun at 21.
She taught in India for much of her life, and committed many different acts of charity and bravery through her life. She was canonised on 4th September as the Pope recognised a second miracle that happened as a result of Mother Teresa's prayer, thereby completing the requirement of two miracles for sainthood.
