  • How did this ‘miracle baby’ survive her twin’s miscarriage, AND an abortion pill?

    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...

    A Fort Lauderdale Maltipoo may not be a cat with nine lives, but certainly is quite lucky after falling 16 stories and surviving. The dog, named Susie, fell through a hole on one of the upper floors of the Southpoint condo building at 3400 Galt Ocean Drive. Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue discovered the dog had fallen through a pipe chase down approximately 16 stories and landed on a piece of concrete in the pipe chase on the second floor. Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue cut holes above and below the second floor to try to get to the dog and after...

    Like Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Martha Coakley also has a book coming out. And by sheer coincidence both books have the same title -- "Hard Choices." Who would have thought that possible? Yet, when you think about it, both women have a lot in common. Actually Coakley really does not have a book coming out -- we just said that. But she could have, given how much the two are alike. They even dress alike.

    TRES RIOS, Costa Rica (AP) — On a warm spring day, Floribeth Mora was in her bed waiting to die from a seemingly inoperable brain aneurysm when her gaze fell upon a photograph of Pope John Paul II in a newspaper. "Stand up," Mora recalls the image of the pope saying to her. "Don't be afraid." Mora, her doctors and the Catholic Church say her aneurysm disappeared that day in a miracle that cleared the way for the late pope to be declared a saint on April 27 in a ceremony at the Vatican where Mora will be a guest...

    A premature newborn in Australia, born along with his twin sister at just 27 weeks’ gestation and weighing in at only two pounds, was pronounced dead by his physician after medical staff tried for twenty minutes to revive him. Jamie Ogg, now a little over three years old, is alive today only because of the undying love and affection of his mother. According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, when Jamie was pronounced dead, the doctor handed him to his mother, Kate, so that she could say goodbye to her son. Kate took Jamie into her arms and tearfully caressed her...

    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...

    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...

    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,...

She had red hair and had probably been rather pretty, but it was hard to tell anymore, she was so near to death from tuberculosis.

The former pastor of St. Mary in Annapolis and St. Wenceslaus in Baltimore suffered a broken neck that left him instantly paralyzed from the chest down. Rushed to a hospital, he underwent emergency spinal cord surgery and later began rehabilitation at a prominent New Jersey institute. Doctors had little encouragement for the once-active priest who was known across the East Coast for his preaching abilities. The chances he would ever walk again were virtually zero....

    A classroom in a special education school in Ashdod has served as a makeshift synagogue on Sabbaths for 40 years running. Throughout those years, not one Sabbath prayer was missed. Until this last Sabbath. And that was what saved the congregants from a Gaza missile that struck the synagogue's courtyard Saturday. Netanel Mor Yosef, a member of the congregation, explained to Arutz Sheva: "The synagogue is active, but only on the Sabbath, for the past 40 years. Not a single Sabbath prayer session was ever missed until this week. Then synagogue's gabbai (treasurer-manager) underwent an operation during the week and...

    We may never know how he did it. It could have involved some sort of broad scale mind control experiment. Perhaps he brought in somebody from over the border in Delaware to cast a spell on the state legislature. But in New Jersey – a state generally defined by partisan warfare between liberal Democrats and really liberal Democrats – Governor Chris Christie has met the public workers unions on the field of battle and sent them running like pigs from the gun. New Jersey lawmakers on Thursday approved a broad rollback of benefits for 750,000 government workers and retirees, the...

    I realize God doesn't always respond with miracles, but this was a miracle healing and we praise God for it. My 41-year-old cousin was dying of liver failure April 21. Her liver was disintegrating. The doctors were treating her as terminal and said her chances of survival didn't exist short of a miracle. Her time frame for survival was hours to possibly weeks, they couldn't really say. Last Monday, April 25, my cousin had to be restrained as she tried to pull a tube out of her nose which was supplying meds to her stomach. It was too uncomfortable and...
