Mother Teresa The Nobel Peace Prize 1979

Mother Teresa The Nobel Peace Prize 1979

On 10 December 1979, Mother Tereza, the Leader of Missionaries of Charity was awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize for her work for bringing help to suffering humanity. She accepted the prize in the name of the people she cared for, the poorest of the poor.

Mother Teresa was canonized by Pope Francis on September 4, 2016 as Saint Teresa. Conforming to the process of canonization, two miracles were deemed to have been performed after she died, both involving the alleged cure of terminally ill people. She was beatified -the first step to sainthood – by Pope John Paul II in 2003, just six years after her death. Mother Teresa would be declared a Saint after the recognition of the second miracle ascribed to her: the healing of a Brazilian man with multiple brain tumors after loved ones prayed to her.
