Maybe you have heard about coincidences that make you wonder in awe? Maybe you have heard about the healing power of prayer that provides each one of us second chances to reside? Some say you can 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 only bring them all for granted. We think all the solution to the questions is science, more knowledge, more power, or more money. We have to find out God may be the key. We have to find out if we let God take part inside our journey, things works out together once and for all for people who love and obey Him.
Like, once we are sick, we pray to God and ask for the intercession of Saints. Then, after some days, we get well. Yes, we have the medicines, but what if God can take living? Aren’t these situations evident of miracles?
Once my youngest brother suffered a significant coronary arrest and we all got troubled because doctors said he would have died showing all of us the records (Paranaque Medical Center). Another patient within the next bed, younger than him died, but my buddy lived. After a couple of weeks, my buddy got discharged without 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 a course in miracles audio. We asked the intercession of Saint Hannibal, Saint Therese and Mama Mary. When he left the home throughout 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, needless to say, when everything else fails and there is no body to operate 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 every our fear, insufficiency and need. God sends them. No explanation validates these miracles, but the wonder of it bears fruits of faith, love and joy. Others would begin to see the light, too and find God in themselves.
Also, take Bertrand Russell’s principle of utility, “There’s hardly a person who does not ask himself, when he’s faced with a predicament which requires decision, if the length of action he’s thinking about embarking upon will soon be helpful to him or not. What’s the nice of it, what is the idea of it, what is the gain as a result?”
Russel says that hardly any men are rational, but Bentham, Mill and other American pragmatists extol the truth that enlightened by way of a vision, what implies the nice of most implies the nice of each.
Miracles accommodate the interests of every living creature. Interests because we’re carnal, but hope because we’re of the Divine. Miracles don’t have 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.
