Mother Theresa to be canonised in September 2016
This is coming 19 years after her death.
Mother Theresa, who died in 1997 at the age of 87, dedicated her life to helping the poor through the missionaries of charity.
The announcement was made during a meeting with cardinals to give the final approval to several sainthood causes.
Most recently, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis would visit Pakistan later this year (2016).
