Pope Francis has approved the second miracle of Blessed Teresa to make path free for Sainthood.

The Vatican announced today that Pope Francis has approved the second miracle of Mother Teresa, making the way free for Sainthood. The process in the catholic church to make someone a Saint is weird, but if there is someone who earns the title of Saint it is Mother Teresa of Kolkata.

According to Vatican Radio, Pope Francis on Thursday authorized the Congregation for the Causes of Saints to promulgate a decree regarding a miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed Teresa.

The approval of the second miracle took place during a private audience with Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

Mother Teresa was born Aug. 26, 1910 and died Sept. 5, 1997. The nun was the founder of the Congregation of the Missionaries of Charity and the Missionaries of Charity. She was born in Albania as Anjëzë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu and has dedicated her life to help the poor in Kolkata, India in the 50s.

She received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.
