Indians are happy that one of us has been recognized as a saint for the third time.
It is of course, a proud moment for us. Mother Teresa, the symbol of passion for the poor and the down-trodden and the statue of love and compassion, has become the Saint. Mother Teresa is transformed into saint Terresa.
However, this transformation required two miracles to happen within five years of her departure from life. As soon as these two miracles were reported, the process of canonization started.
However, the question arises as to whether we should believe in miracles or should we develop a scientific approach. If we believe that through the faith of Mother Teresa, an ulcer can be cured, don’t we strengthen superstitions and illogical rituals?
