NEW DELHI, INDIA: (FILES) This undated photo shows Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa will be beatified, 19 October 2003, in a ceremony in St Peter's Square, Vatican. The beatification ceremony is the penultimate step to being canonised a saint and has been the shortest in modern history.

We remember Mother Teresa, who died on September 5, 1997, though her legacy continues to move the world even years after her passing.
