Perhaps you have learned about coincidences that produce you wonder in awe? Perhaps you have learned about the healing power of prayer that offers every one of us second chances to reside? Some say you will find no coincidences, but grace. And as St. Therese declares, “… the miracles of God here and now.”
We all have our own testimonies of God’s saving power, yet sometimes we just take them all for granted. We think all the answer to your questions is science, more knowledge, more power, or more money. We have to find out God could be the key. We have to find out when we let God take part within our journey, everything will continue to work out together permanently for those who love and obey Him.
Like, when we are sick, we pray to God and ask for the intercession of Saints. Then, after some days, we get well. Yes, we’ve the medicines, but imagine if God will take the life span? Aren’t these situations evident of miracles?
Once my youngest brother suffered a significant coronary arrest and most of us got troubled because doctors said he would have died showing people the records (Paranaque Medical Center). Another patient within the next bed, younger than him died, but my brother lived. After fourteen days, my brother got discharged without any defect of speech nor movement. Only he was advised to go back to the cardiologist for followup check up, stress tests and maintenance medicines. In this case, we prayed to the Saints. We asked the intercession of Saint Hannibal, Saint Therese and Mama Mary. When he left the house through that scenario I let him wear a scapular. We prayed should he live or not, it is God’s will. And he lived. Here’s life’s second chances.
And there’s more, needless to say, when everything else fails and there is no body to run to, we call the Saints to steer us. Call Saint Anthony, Saint Joseph, St Michael and the holy angels to guard our needs. They come in silence in most our fear, insufficiency and need. God sends them a course in miracles free. No explanation validates these miracles, but the wonder of it bears fruits of faith, love and joy. Others would see the light, too and find God in themselves.
Also, take Bertrand Russell’s principle of utility, “There’s hardly an individual who doesn’t ask himself, when he is confronted with a scenario which requires decision, whether the course of action he is thinking of embarking upon will soon be helpful to him or not. What’s the great of it, what’s the point of it, what’s the gain from it?”
Russel says that very few men are rational, but Bentham, Mill and other American pragmatists extol the fact enlightened by a vision, what implies the great of all implies the great of each.
Miracles accommodate the interests of each and every living creature. Interests because we’re carnal, but hope because we’re of the Divine. Miracles haven’t any errors. I call it God’s will and God’s grace and mercy. I call it God’s love which no man can ever explain, but the Holy Spirit.
