Pope Francis canonized Mother Teresa, known around the world for her work with the poorest of the poor in India, as a saint on Sept 4, 2016. In making her a saint, the Vatican recognized a second miracle: the healing of a Brazilian man with brain tumors whose family prayed for her help after her death.
The Albanian nun, who died at the age of 87 on Sept. 5, 1997, founded the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India. The humanitarian and Noble Peace Prize winner will be known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, reports CBS News correspondent Seth Doane.
