Mir­a­cles at­trib­uted to St. Teresa

Cebu Libre - - NEWS -

THE first of two mir­a­cles at­trib­uted to St. Teresa was rec­og­nized by the Vat­i­can in 2002. The mir­a­cle in­volved the heal­ing of a tu­mor in the ab­domen of an In­dian woman, Mon­ica Besra, af­ter the ap­pli­ca­tion of a locket con­tain­ing Mother Teresa's pic­ture. Besra said that a beam of light em­anated from the pic­ture, cur­ing the can­cer­ous tu­mor.

The sec­ond mir­a­cle was rec­og­nized by Pope Fran­cis clear­ing the way for the Ro­man Catholic nun to be de­clared a saint.

The mir­a­cle in­volved the heal­ing of a Brazil­ian man with sev­eral brain tu­mours in 2008, the Vat­i­can said.

Mother Teresa died in 1997 and was be­at­i­fied - the first step to­wards saint­hood - in 2003. Last Sun­day, she was can­on­ized as a Saint.

ANG Brazil­ian nga si Mar­cilio An­drino gi in­gun nga naayo sa iyang brain tu­mors sam­tang ang In­dian nga si Mon­ica Besra (tuo) nagkanayon nga si Mother Teresa ang nag-ayo sa iyang ovar­ian can­cer.
