Pope Francis has formally approved Mother Teresa's elevation to sainthood and set 4th Sept as the date for her canonisation. The move comes 19 years after the death of the missionary nun who dedicated most of her adult life to working with the poor of India. Blessed Mother Teresa died on 5 September 1997 and was beatified just six years later by St. John Paul II.
