MOTHER TERESA'S BEATIFICATION ADVANCES

        ROME, NOV 9 (ZENIT).- Mother Teresa's beatification process is advancing at great speed, following the opening of the cause, which took place thanks to the Pope's decision to make an exception to the existing norm of waiting at least 5 years before beginning a cause for beatification. At present, a commission of experts is studying four alleged miracles attributed to Mother Teresa's intercession. In addition, the Vice-Postulator of the cause is hearing the testimony of more than 100 persons who knew Mother Teresa, and who are cooperating in the reconstruction of her life.

        "The ten passports that we have found belonging to Mother Teresa serve as a precious guide for the final steps towards her beatification cause," Fr. Biran Qolodiejhuq explained. After India, the countries the founder of the Missionaries of Charity visited most often were the United States and Italy.

        In so far as the miracles are concerned, the priest clarified that the diocesan committee established by the Bishop of Calcutta is receiving reports of miracles from all over the world. In particular, special attention is being given to four cases, which in the first instance appear to be especially convincing, and which will be subjected to examination by medical and scientific commissions.
