    When his premature baby boy was declared dead, his father wrapped him in layers of cloth and took his body to the morgue. But 15 hours later, workers at the Chinese morgue heard moaning and discovered that the baby boy was alive.

    Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.

For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.(Deuteronomy 32:7-9)It is an undeniable fact that the Nation and People of Israel are unique among all people’s of the world.

    Marriage Is a Miracle! A Homily for the 27th Sunday of the Year Msgr. Charles Pope • October 3, 2015 • Both today’s first reading and the gospel speak to us of the miracle of marriage. If your marriage is working even reasonably well, it is a miracle! We live in an age that is poisonous to marriage. Many people look for marriage to be ideal, and if there is any ordeal, they want a new deal. Our culture says, if it doesn’t work out, bail out. Thus, successful marriages today are a miracle. But marriages are also a miracle...

    A Syrian woman accused of adultery, and sentenced by ISIS to death by stoning, has survived the wicked and cruel punishment. The Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, proclaimed the Syrian town of Raqa its capital after invading it, as well as many other areas in Iraq and Syria, last summer. With already vicious laws against women throughout much of the Middle East, the notoriously brutal and often sickening treatment of women and children by ISIS certainly hasnt made life any more forgiving for women in those occupied areas. In a miracle of sorts, however, one woman facing jihadist...

It was a bunch of college kids matched up against one of the best teams in hockey history. The United States triumphed with an improbable comeback 35 years ago.

A team of more than a dozen doctors and nurses had been working desperately to revive her.

Devastated, Graupera-Cassimiro's husband, mother and sister said goodbye to her just hours after they'd welcomed a healthy baby girl....

    By all accounts, Megan Hui shouldn’t be alive. When her mom, Michelle, was six weeks and two days pregnant she began bleeding, and multiple scans confirmed that she had miscarried. But what Michelle and her doctors didn’t know was that she was pregnant with twins, and she had only lost one of the babies. That oversight nearly cost Megan her life, when doctors prescribed mifepristone, a drug that is normally used to cause an abortion, in order to empty out the uterus and ensure that the miscarriage was complete. Days after taking the drug, however, Michelle took a pregnancy test...

    In recent columns in the mainstream press, columnists have been distorting gleefully the Pope's recent statements to make it appear he's the liberal that will bring the Catholic Church in line with their own agenda. (See: What the Pope really said.) In actuality, Pope Francis is no more likely to approve gay marriage or homosexual activity than any other pope. If the media were less agenda-driven, they would be trying to debunk a miracle that defies explanation and which involves Pope Francis when he was a bishop in Argentina in 1996. For many Christians, Holy Communion is a symbolic...

    After two days trapped in freezing cold water and breathing from an air bubble in an upturned tugboat under the ocean, Harrison Okene was sure he was going to die.

SNIP Somehow Okene survived, breathing inside a four foot high bubble of air as it shrunk in the waters slowly...

    In the early days of May 1940 German panzer forces overran Belgium and France, trapping the bulk of the British army against the sea effectively creating what could have become the greatest military disaster in British history. But God heard the prayers of the people of England, and soon many of those same people participated in what has become known as 'The Miracle at Dunkirk.' There are many places to read about this historical event but too often most accounts leave out the strong evidence that the Hand of God played a large part of the story. That...

    Mother Theresia Bonzel, who founded the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration in Germany, in 1863, is scheduled for beatification in November a step toward sainthood as a result of boy's miraculous recovery.

    The following is an excerpt from a client letter published in early March. As noted previous articles the global central banks have begun to realize that the success of their reflationary efforts has resulted in yet another speculative bubble in asset classes, specifically stocks and real estate. Nowhere are these issues more evident today than in China. Many commentators have spent a great deal of ink proclaiming China to be the next great economic power. While it is true China has seen dramatic improvements in its economy over the last 30 years, my view has been and remains that most...

    The fourth year of President Obamas reign maintained his traditional omission of God from the Thanksgiving address to the nation. This break from his predecessors was vigorously defended by First Lady Michelle Obama. Why should God get the credit for blessings that He had no part in creating? Michelle asked. Its federal farm programs that ensure a robust harvest each year. Its the FDA that guarantees the food we put on our tables is safe to eat. And its the generous expansion of eligibility for Food Stamps that has enabled even the poorest among us the opportunity to enjoy an...

    One of the most important things people overlook in dealing with sickness is what they speak out of their mouth. You can't just speak anything because your words have an effect on your body. In the book of James he says, if you offend not in word, you are able to bridle your whole body. He also goes on to say your tongue is like the rudder of a ship, so if you want to go from sickness to healing then you are going to have to set your tongue to healing and not sickness. In 1Peter 3:10 he says,...
