Besra's husband says doctors cured her, not Mother Teresa

Press Trust of India

Posted: Oct 14, 2002 at 1052 hrs IST

The husband of Monica Besra who was reportedly cured miraculously by Mother Teresa, has said his wife was cured by doctors and not by miracle, a report has said.

"It is much ado about nothing," he told the Time magazine. "My wife was cured by the doctors and not by any miracle." Peeved with the attention his now famous wife was getting, he wants to be left in peace.

According to the report, he was peeved at wife's fame, in part because the press was constantly at his doorstep.

"I want to stop this jamboree, people coming with cameras as every few hours or so," he said.

Domestic bliss, the report said, has fled the household of Seiku Murmu and his wife Monica Besra.

Monica is a celebrity in the small village of Dangram because she is the beneficiary of what many catholics believe is the first posthumous miracle of Mother Teresa, founder of the Missionaries of Charity.

On Sept. 5, 1998, the first anniversary of the nun's death, Monica was suffering abdominal pain caused, she believed, by a tumour. But the purported tumour vanished when Monica applied a medallion with an image of the Mother to the location of her pain.

In August 2001, Monica's miracle was supplied to the Vatican as part of the fast-tracking of Mother Teresa's canonisation. Two weeks ago, the Vatican recognised the 1998 miracle, beginning the process of Mother Teresa's beatification, a major step toward sainthood.
