In coming few days, an official decree recognizing the miracle is expected to be published by the Vatican. The miracle details include that 35-year-old engineer from Santos in Brazil who was newly married got diagnosed with multiple cerebral abscesses with hydrocephalus obstruction.

What is more, he already had a kidney transplant and was being treated with immune-suppressors. He had very little chances to survive as he was in coma; but his wife urged people to pray for Mother Teresa to intercede with God on his behalf. Shortly, after this doctors who were ready to operate him, found that he was fully conscious and asking why he was in an operating theatre.

Mother Teresa who was born in Agnes Gonxhe Bojaxhiu in Skopje, Macedonia in 1910; founded the Missionaries of Charity in 1949. She and her charity cared for the poor and sick in what was then Calcutta. Owing to her tireless service to the poor she became popularly known as the “saint of the gutter.” She was personally known to Pope Francis as she sat beside him during a synod.

Mother Teresa also won the Nobel Peace Prize for her effective mission to the poor and needy in the slums of Mumbai. In 2003 she was beatified when the first of the two miracles needed for canonisation was recognised by the Vatican.
