Pope Won’t Waive Second Miracle

Proof that the Pope is a man of honor: Pope will not waive second miracle for Teresa

Pope Benedict XVI is unlikely to accelerate the process of declaring Mother Teresa a saint by waving the mandatory second miracle that can be attributed to her, according to the former head of the Missionaries of Charity.

"No, the Holy Father will not waive it," former MC superior-general Sr Nirmala, who succeeded Mother Teresa to the post, told PTI when asked whether Pope Benedict is likely to do away with the requirement of a second miracle for a person to be 'canonised' (declared a saint).

The first miracle involved the disappearance of a giant stomach tumor. It will be tough to top that one, but I think they'll come up with something.
