Miracles attributed to St. Teresa
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.
