the actual story behind the cure over Brazil? Any sources? WBGconverse 19:15, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

There is a reasonable summary of the timeline and participants here, if credulous. There is also a piece by a leading academic on the issue of credulity here. Hope that helps. Mramoeba (talk) 19:26, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
The first account is quite good; I had read it earlier and know the reporter, personally.
That being said, I remain unwilling to buy that this was a chance-remission and not a much sophisticated re-run of the Monica Besra fraud. Thus, I was left wondering whether any source has cropped up in the recent years that explains the Brazil cure. WBGconverse 20:16, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
This raises some interesting questions but given it's right-wing-affiliation; I can't give much weight, either. Need to search.... WBGconverse 20:22, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Theresa was never ArchbisohpEdit

In the first sentance of the section "Co-Patron of Calcutta Archdiocese" I believe it is a typo that was meant so say "St. Teresa" or maybe "Mother Teresea" but appears to inadverntely say "Archbishop Teresa" " On September 4, 2017, during a celebration honoring the 1st anniversary of her canonization, Sister Mary Prema Pierick, Superior-General of the Missionaries of Charity, announced that Archbishop Teresa would be made the co-patron of the Calcutta Archdiocese during a Holy Mass in the Cathedral of the Most Holy Rosary at 5.30 pm on September 6, 2017" — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:26, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Her family historyEdit

There isn't a whole lot of information on her family history. I'm hoping to add some detail in the future. Like the fact that being ethnic Albanians they moved there after Skopje became part of kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. So her mother and sister had actually remained in Albania, and she wasn't able to see them because of the communist regime, the leader of which at the time wouldn't let her into the country. Nor was her sick mother allowed to leave Albania at the time to get treatment. Both mother and sister died before the regime fell, so despite many countries appealing on Mother Teresa's behalf, she never got to see her family. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Berehinia (talkcontribs) 02:06, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
