Pope Approves Miracle - Bl. Teresa of Calcutta to be Canonized


News reports are flooding the internet stating that Pope Francis has approved a second miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, a beloved nun who dedicated her life to the 'poorest of the poor.' This should be suffice to canonize her, making her officially a canonized saint.

These reports are claiming that the Vatican has approved her canonization for September of 2016.  I have yet to confirm this and we have heard the same thing in March of 2015 and nothing happened.  I will keep following the reports until I can confirm if the canonization part of the story is factual.  Stay tuned!



UPDATE:

It is official.  Blessed Teresa of Calcutta will be canonized.  No date has been set, but some believe it will be on or around the day of her death: Sept 4 or 5 2016.  A Brazilian man suffering from abscesses in the brain experienced a miracle via the intercession of the holy nun.  His condition vanished after asking for her intercession.
