I. Mother Teresa Was Declear as a Saint(特蕾莎修女的封圣之路)

        On September 4, 2016, Mother Teresa was declared as a saint by the Vatican officially. It was facilitated by Pope John Paul, who allowed the beatification process to begin 15 months after her death instead of waiting the usual five years or more. Her beatification is believed to be the fastest in the modern history of the Roman Catholic Church.

        2016年9月4日,特蕾莎修女被梵蒂冈教廷正式封为圣人。当年,教皇保罗二世曾亲自下达宣福指令,使德蕾莎修女的封圣程序得以在她辞世的十五个月后便展开,而非例行的五年或更久。宣福成圣的德蕾莎修女,被认为是天主教会现代史上最快封圣的神职人员。
