Second miracle for Bl. Mother Teresa's canonization?

~from Union of Catholic Asian News

Blessed Teresa of Kolkata may cross her last hurdle to sainthood if the Vatican approves a miraculous cure a Salesian priest claims he experienced on her 10th death anniversary.

Father V.M. Thomas says Blessed Teresa's intercession cured him of a stone, or calculus, in his lower ureter. The priest's doctors certify he had a stone 13 millimeters in diameter and was advised to undergo surgery. But the stone disappeared in an "unexplainable" manner after he celebrated Mass and prayed to Blessed Teresa on Sept. 5, the 10th anniversary of her death.

The 56-year-old-Salesian priest is based in Guwahati, the main hub of northeastern India, 1,960 kilometers east of New Delhi. He was associated with Blessed Teresa until her death in 1997.
