Canonization ceremony was held in the Vatican. To listen to a solemn Mass in St. Peter's Square gathered tens of thousands of people.
Many pilgrims arrived at the Vatican before dawn on Sunday to get a good spot among the masses for the ceremony.
Pope Francis responded: 'After due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother bishops, we declare and define Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a saint and we enroll her among the saints, decreeing that she is to be venerated as such by the whole Church.'
The canonization became possible after the recognition of a second miracle associated with the name of Mother Teresa. The Vatican confirmed that a resident of Brazil, suffered from a brain tumor, was healed as a result of her heavenly intercession.
Recall Mother Teresa - an ethnic Albanian, was born in 1910 in Skopje, capital of Macedonia, where she spent the first 18 years of life, and then worked as a teacher in Calcutta.
