MOTHER THERESA'S BEATIFICATION PROCESS CONTINUES

          ROME, JUN 23 (ZENIT).- A few days ago, the Missionaries of Charity made a formal request for opening the diocesan process of beatification of Mother Theresa of Calcutta. The petition was presented by Archbishop Henry D'Souza of Calcutta. The Archbishop said the process would begin within the next few weeks. The Archbishop pointed out that the tribunal, which must call and hear the witnesses, has not been appointed yet. Although, normally five years must go by after the death of a candidate before introducing the cause of beatification, John Paul II gave a dispensation from this norm in the case of Mother Theresa of Calcutta, who died on September 5, 1997.
