Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa is going to be officially recognized by the Catholic Church as a saint. The ceremony will take place later this year on September 4. Mother Teresa, born in Macedonia in 1910, was a Catholic nun who devoted her life to helping very poor and sick people. She spent most of her adult life in India. For her work, she received the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. She died in 1997. Here is a video about her.
