Mother Teresa
Baruipur (West Bengal), Aug 24: Mother Teresa's elevation to sainthood is said to be on fast track as the Church is still looking for an 'acceptable' miracle attributed to her, a prelate said on Tuesday, Aug 24 in West Bengal.

"We are receiving reports from all over the world of favours granted by Mother. Miracle has certain characteristics. Favours reported do not fit into the characteristics," said Bishop Salvadore Lobo of Baruipur

Soon after Teresa's death on Sep 5, 1997, Pope John Paul-II put her on the fast-track to sainthood, concluding her beatification on Oct 19, 2003, on the basis of a tribal woman who was cured of stomach tumour after praying to her.

Church Law requires another miracle of a medical nature attributable to her before she could be declared saint. Bishop Salvadore Lobo of Baruipur said new team will be formed in the country where the fresh miracle is to be reported.
