Scientists always wants to explain away the miracles, don’t they? LOL!
He had trouble accepting the change in the vision of the child because he taught it was impossible.
I don't think he was trying to explain away the miracle.
He just was trained that if certain medical conditions were true, then the diagnosis must be...
At any rate, there was a similar case recently in Australia. The mother gave kangaroo care to her dead who had died premature. The baby had been declared legally dead.
The mother was holding the baby one last time. Then the baby started to breathe. The doctor thought it impossible since the baby was legally dead.
It is an interesting story.
It is not so much that medicine refuses to accept these things -- it is more a mathematician trying to accept 2 + 2 is 5 type of thing. It just does not make sense to him.
But God can suspend Natural Law...
That miracle was the source of his vocation. At that point in his life, being a medical student, he understood science.
He understood, I am sure, how natural law was suspended by the miracle he saw.
Sometimes it is hard to accept the supernatural.
If you see a saint levitate [many instances could be named], you and I might accept it, but others would on in disbelief.
Of course, the famous story of Saint Joseph of Cupertino was that he forbidden from levitating until they needed some bells hung in the bell tower. Then he obeyed the orders of his superior... And he hung the bells through levitation -- just by praying.
If that would be shown live on TV today, people would ridicule as some sort of trick such as hidden wires...
