Mother Teresa’s Condition Serious

Compiled From Wire Services

Mother Teresa remained in serious condition on a respirator Sunday as Christian and Hindu priests, Buddhist monks and Muslim clerics alike prayed for the world’s champion of the poor.

Dr. A.K. Bardhan said her fever had come down, but her heartbeat was still irregular.

Looking tiny, pale and weak in her large bed in the intensive care unit, Mother Teresa mustered the strength Sunday to bless a group of six nuns visiting from her Missionaries of Charity order.
