The Vatican has tentatively announced that Mother Teresa will be canonized. The Catholic nun was world renowned for her work to end hunger and poverty.


Media outlets reported that Mother Teresa's canonization would take place on Sept. 4, 2016, but the Vatican said that the date was only hypothetical, according the National Catholic Reporter.


Mother Teresa was known for strong pro-life views. In a 1985 interview she said that unborn babies are created in the image of God, Life News reports. 


“That is why it is such a terrible thing to think that the mother, to whom the child has been given as a gift of God, could destroy it,” she said.


“That’s why I think that abortion has become the greatest destroyer of peace today because it destroys the life of the child, but also destroys the conscience of the mother also, and for years and years, she knows that she has murdered her own child.”
