If Mother Teresa can cure one person, why doesn't she use her saintly powers to cure everyone?

This article states that the departed Mother Teresa cured someone of a kidney stone on the 10th anniversary of her death:

If the Catholic church really accepts this as true, why isn’t anyone ticked off at these saints for not curing everyone. ‘Obviously,’ they have the power. And yet people die every day … even ones that pray to Mother Teresa.

But, the kidney stone dude is much better now … that was a close one. He almost had to pass it naturally.

    Calm down dude…why would you question the abilities of a dead woman who gave her life to helping the less fortunate? The idea of sainthood may be iffy but come on…have some respect.

    The true believer knows people dont cure people, God does.

    hence, its not something that people can tap into and ‘heal’.

    sometimes tho, a devout persons prayers will make all the difference.

    thus its the power of prayer, not the persons powers per se

    Im not Catholic but I know knowledgeable Catholics would agree with me.

    why just the catholic church.. as well the protestants preach those things about miracles…. read the Bible

    because people do not love and adore and hope to be saved by her savior Jesus who is who she goes to to answer the prayers that are prayed to her. The same as when she was on Earth—she always depended on Jesus.

    She is leading by example – no one can do your homework.
    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    exactly and the same goes for all the others who claim to heal, example Benny Hinn . Personal agendas and making a mockery of God. There are healing’s that come from God but they aren’t paraded around like a magic show.
