Have you found out about coincidences which make you wonder in awe? Have you found out about the healing power of prayer that offers every one of us second chances to reside? Some say there are no coincidences, but grace. And as St. Therese declares, “… the miracles of God here and now.”
Most of us have our own testimonies of God’s saving power, yet sometimes we just bring them all for granted. We think all the clear answer to your questions is science, more knowledge, more power, or maybe more money. We have to find out God is the key. We have to find out if we let God take part inside our journey, things will work out together permanently for people who love and obey Him.
As an example, whenever we are sick, we pray to God and require the intercession of Saints. Then, after some days, we get well. Yes, we have the medicines, but imagine if God will take the life span? Aren’t these situations evident of miracles?
Once my youngest brother suffered a major coronary attack and we all got troubled because doctors said he could have died showing us all the records (Paranaque Medical Center). Another patient within the next bed, younger than him died, but my buddy lived. After fourteen days, my buddy got discharged without any defect of speech nor movement. Only he was advised to return to the cardiologist for follow up check up, stress tests and maintenance medicines. In this case, we prayed to the Saints acim. We asked the intercession of Saint Hannibal, Saint Therese and Mama Mary. When he left the house during that scenario I let him wear a scapular. We prayed should he live or not, it’s God’s will. And he lived. Listed here is life’s second chances.
And there’s more, obviously, when all else fails and there is nobody to perform to, we call the Saints to steer us. Call Saint Anthony, Saint Joseph, St Michael and the holy angels to protect our needs. They come alone in most our fear, insufficiency and need. God sends them. No explanation validates these miracles, however 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 someone who does not ask himself, when he’s up against a scenario which requires decision, whether the span of action he’s considering embarking upon will undoubtedly be beneficial to him or not. What is the great of it, what’s the purpose of it, what’s the gain as a result?”
Russel says that very few men are rational, but Bentham, Mill and other American pragmatists extol the fact that enlightened with a vision, what implies the great of implies the great of each.
Miracles accommodate the interests of each living creature. Interests because we are carnal, but hope because we are of the Divine. Miracles have no errors. I call it God’s will and God’s grace and mercy. I call it God’s love that no man can ever explain, however the Holy Spirit.
