Mother Teresa is a saint. No, really. The Pope just granted her sainthood.
In a Mass held at the Vatican on Sunday morning, Pope Francis canonized the late nun for the philanthropic work she did throughout her life.
Mother Teresa, who died almost two decades ago, spent most of her life helping the poor in India.
The Roman Catholic nun has long been called Saint of the Gutters, so the canonization just validates how many already felt about the her.
The church says one of the miracles healed the abdominal tumor of woman in India. The other reportedly healed multiple brain tumors in a man after his family prayed to Mother Teresa.
But despite those miracles, some believe her sainthood isn't deserved.
The late Christopher Hitchens, who is known for his writings against the church, claimed Mother Teresa took dirty money that mysteriously disappeared.
And the head of a Hindu nationalist organization said the nun had ulterior motives in performing her charity work by aiming to convert those served to Christianity.
Mother Teresa is the third saint to be canonized by Pope Francis this year.
