Mother Teresa to be canonised? - UPDATED

It's official!
- Vatican Radio
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta is to be made a Saint. 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 (nee Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu).

Blessed Teresa, known around the world as Mother Teresa was born August 26, 1910 and died September 5, 1997. She was foundress of the Congregation of the Missionaries of Charity and the Missionaries of Charity

While we wait for the bollettino to drop at 12 noon Rome time, various reports are online (relying on  a report in the Avvenire newspaper of the Italian Catholic Bishop's Conference) reporting that Pope Francis has approved the recognition of a second miracle attributed to the intercession of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. No coverage yet from Vatican Radio. News.va or VIS so we will have to wait for the official confirmation.
