Hundreds of thousands of people gather at the vatican to witness the beatification of Mother Teresa.

Mother Teresa won the Nobel Peace Prize for her decades of service and pilgrims have thronged into St Peter's Square in Rome to witness the beatification of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Pope John Paul II, unable to pronounce a homily for the first time due to age and illness, presided over the rite which brings the world-famous nun close to sainthood, just six years after her death.

Indian sitar music blended with traditional hymns to celebrate the nun who spent more than 60 years attending to the sick and dying of Calcutta.

Guests included regulars from a soup kitchen in Rome run by Mother Teresa's order and the celebrations extended abroad, to Calcutta itself and Albania in recognition of Mother Teresa's Balkan roots.

The miracle done by her may be in doubt, but can you ever actually prove a miracle? Oh well, she dedicated her life to helping others...she's a saint in my book

About damm time!

She gave her life to help others in need.

If she's not a saint then who is?

There is a process for accreditation of miracles that any Church that's into canonization goes through, with bureaucracy in every quarter.

It's actually much tougher in the Orthodox religions than Catholicism, in number and proofing of the miracles. For what it's worth.

I'm not really a big fan of hers after reading this.
