PROCESS OF BEATIFICATION OF MOTHER TERESA TO BEGIN IN JULY

          VATICAN CITY, 26 (NE) The process of beatification of Mother Teresa will officially begin next July 28 in the city of Calcutta, where the founder of the Missionaries of Charity began an abnegate work of service to the "most poor among the poor".

          The Archbishop of Calcutta, Henry D'Souza, informed of the date in which the diocesan phase of the process will begin, during which different testimonies on the life and work of the nun of Albanian origin will be listened to. In the last days, sisters of the Missionaries of Charity made the official delivery to the prelate of biographical material necessary to begin the cause.

          Also, it was made known that witness on the life of the Mother Teresa will also be listened to in Rome and New York. The process will then pass on to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. During the process, a medical commission will verify if scientific explanations exist or not for some of the healings attributed to the intercession of Mother Teresa.
