The nun, Mother Teresa, is declared a saint only after 19 years after her death

 


Pope Francis has declared Mother Teresa of Calcutta, known as the "saint of the gutters" during her life, a saint, just 19 years after her death.

Applause erupted in St Peter's Square at the Vatican even before Francis finished pronouncing the rite of canonisation at the start of the Mass for the nun on Sunday with the attendance of thousands of pilgrims.
Pilgrims streamed into the square from early morning ahead of a service to honour the nun and Nobel peace laureate, who worked among the world's poorest in the slums of the Indian city now known as Kolkata.
Her legacy complements Pope Francis's vision of a humble church that strives to serve the poor, and the festivities are a highlight of his Holy Year of Mercy, which runs until November 8.


Millions of Catholics revere the nun as a model of compassion, and more than 100,000 people were expected at the mid-morning ceremony in front of St Peter's Basilica, decked out with a canvas of the late nun in her trademark blue-hemmed white robes.
