Mother Teresa Prays For Aids Cure

Compiled From Wire Services

Mother Teresa says she prays that AIDS researchers will discover a cure for the disease.

The Roman Catholic nun who won the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize was a guest Sunday at a convention in Rome attended by some 500 AIDS experts from Italy and abroad.

“I’m sure that God will help you find these therapies,” the Italian news agency ANSA quoted her as saying.

Mother Teresa urged scientists not to neglect other aspects of the disease while searching for a cure.

“In absence of a better medicine, love is for now the best medicine” said the nun, whose missionaries around the world care for the sick and the dying.
