About Mother Teresa of Calcutta



<<< Favors, Graces and Miracles received through Mother Teresa



[I] am an immigrant to Canada from Southern part of India. After coming to Canada, we were trying get admission for my wife for Bachelor of Education Program in the University. It was very difficult to get admission... By God's grace, she passed everything and finally got admission in the university. We strongly believe that Mother Mary and Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta interceded to Jesus for her. We thank and praise Jesus for the favor.



We met a young mother ... of four children.... She was very sad because her three and a half year old daughter had lost one kidney because of cancer, and the other kidney was already affected. We told her "Love is greater than anything" and with this certainty, [she should] give a massage to the feet to her little one every night, thinking of the love of Our Lady in her heart and praying to her for healing. We gave her a Miraculous Medal and invited her to the prayer group .... From this moment on, we started to pray to Mother Teresa for a miraculous healing. We met her again, just after the medical check-up of her child ... and she gave us the news that the doctors were amazed, because the spot in the kidney had disappeared completely. ... We attribute this miracle to Blessed Teresa of Calcutta's intercession and we give thanks to Our Lord, and to Our Lady. The doctors have continued with the checkups and, praise the Lord, all the results have been negative.


A ... lady ... was sent to us by a priest. She had already lost a girl at eight months of pregnancy for kidney problems. She became pregnant soon after; this time, it was a boy with the same problem [a hereditary sickness]. ... Doctors in different places advised her to [have an abortion] ... because the child did not have hope to live. ... She came to our house every week during the month of September and we encouraged this family to have faith, to pray to Mother, and to wear the Miraculous Medal. On the night of 19th to 20th of October, the anniversary of Mother Teresa's Beatification, she [delivered her baby by cesarean section]. The baby was born fully alive; he is now two weeks old. [Although the mother was still recovering from] the surgery, the family came directly from the hospital after one week ... to give thanks to Our Lady of Charity in the Shrine, and to visit us with the baby. The baby's name is Jesus. They were full of joy and confidence and Jesus too was very peaceful.



I am enclosing a detailed account of the horrific freak accident that occurred ... when [my neighbor] was kicked in the head by a cow on their farm .... We requested [the sisters] to pray for her recovery, through the intercession of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. [The sisters] promised to do this and requested us to write down the details of her story if she recovered and actually went back home to live on her farm in the future! So I have kept my promise ... Teresa is really very well now, thank God!
