No second miracle waiver for Mother Teresa

Pope Benedict will not waive a requirement for a second miracle for Mother Teresa, according to former Missionaries of Charity head, Sister Nirmala.

“No, the Holy Father will not waive it,” former MC superior-general Sr Nirmala, who succeeded Mother Teresa to the post, told PTI, the Times of India reports.

After her death on September 5, 1997, Pope John Paul II initiated a fast track sainthood process for Teresa and beatified her on October 19, 2003, after a North Bengal tribal woman Monica Besra was found to have been cured of a tumour at the nun’s intercession.
