    Do you find it difficult to believe in God or accept the claims of Christianity? I did, when I was an atheist, but I changed my mind, and my reasons for doing so may be of interest to you in your own personal journey and attempts to make sense of life. I am a freelance writer and lecturer. Since graduating from Oxford in 1973, with a degree in politics and philosophy, I have spent most of my professional life in politics and journalism, loving, as I do, the world of books, ideas and debate. Two questions in particular have always...
  • Doctor Ready to Give Up on Unresponsive Boy When Patient’s Mom Starts Praying [NBC Exclusive VIDEO]

    His parents are calling it an answer to their prayers. His doctors are completely mystified. Fourteen-year-old John Smith is just happy to be alive. According to TODAY, Smith, an eighth grader from Missouri, and two friends fell through the ice after they walked out onto frozen Lake St. Louise. Smith was submerged in the icy water for more than 15 minutes before first responders arrived. The paramedics performed CPR on site for 15 minutes and doctors continued for almost 30 more minutes once he arrived at SSM St. Joseph Hospital West.

    The Wanderer ^ | December 13, 2014 | JAMES LIKOUDIS
    Walter Cardinal Kasper has been regarded in liberal circles as a profound theologian and an expert on ecumenism and Jewish-Catholic relations, as well as an authority on Vatican II. At the center of a recent storm of controversy over his views on the possibility of change concerning the doctrine of the Church on sexual morality, his views were unfortunately echoed by some other bishops at the recent Extraordinary Synod of Bishops in Rome. The result? Other cardinals and bishops were prompted to publicly denounce such attacks on Catholic teaching crying out, “Enough of this!” They referred to calls from Cardinal...

    The Truth About Miracles Some of the greatest gifts God has given to the Church for evangelism are the gifts of miracles. As a Pentecostal before I became Catholic, I always believed God still performs miracles, but I never saw anything close to what Catholics too often take for granted in both the number and kind of miracles God pours out upon his One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church in every generation. Everything from the raising of the dead, to restorative miracles of the body and more have been experienced in the Church for 2,000 years fulfilling our Lord’s...

    "Miracle on 34th Street," "White Christmas," and "It's a Wonderful Life" are among my favorite Christmas movies. All three stories revolve around people, connections and miracles. In "Miracle on 34th Street," Natalie Wood plays Susan, a second-grader raised by her mother, Doris, to be practical and not to believe in miracles. But Susan's skepticism fades after she sees a department store Santa (Kris) talk to another girl in her native Dutch. Santa is accused of being crazy and taken to court for presenting himself as Santa Claus, but after the post office delivers Santa mail to him, the case is...

    CARM ^ | Matt Slick
    The miracles of Jesus attest to who Jesus is, God in flesh (John 1:1,14; Col. 2:9). Jesus used the Divine Name for Himself (John 8:58), the same Divine Name used by God when Moses asked God what His name was in Exodus 3:14. However, people claiming to be God is not that uncommon in the world. Mental institutions are filled with those who claim to be divine. But, Jesus doesn't fit the category of a crazy person. If anything, Jesus deserves the utmost respect and admiration for His humility, love, teaching, and self-sacrifice. But, even though there are other great...

The greatest miracle of all, of course, is the Resurrection, the fact that He went to that cruel Roman cross and died for our sins, and then rose again, delivering us once for all from the eternal penalty of our sin, all as a free gift, one that we don't deserve, one that we could never earn.

    Ten Saints Every Worrier Should Know Nov 12th, 2012by Gary Zimak   Although we’d rather not admit it, many of us worry (or are tempted to worry) each day of our lives. One of the reasons that we worry is that we sometimes feel we are facing our problems alone. Once we meet others who are dealing with similar problems, we usually feel better. Even more comforting is when we encounter someone who has survived the issue that is troubling us. As Catholics, much can be gained by studying the lives of the saints. Far from living easy lives, these...

    SALT LAKE CITY — The last time Rosaelia Nevarez was diagnosed with cancer, her doctors weren’t optimistic about her chances for recovery. She needed an emergency operation, they said, and suggested she call her family to her hospital bedside. During the operation, she dreamed of the Virgin Mary. “She said, ‘You will be OK. You don’t have to be afraid,” Nevarez said. Appearing with Mary was Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, a saint Nevarez had heard of but didn’t know much about. Though a Catholic, Nevarez had left the Church several times, “but my faith has always been that without God...

    It's Memorial Day, and it is not an abuse of the word "miracle" to suggest that it applies to the volunteering of the soldier who gives his life so that we might live in freedom.Here is what I would consider a miracle: a generous, exceedingly wealthy patron decides, after reading this blog, that this man William M. Briggs deserves financial independence so that he is able to continue his curmudgeonly investigations of science and philosophy without having to worry about procuring his rent; and thus the patron provides this man Briggs a sack full of (tax free) gold. I hope...

    WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. — James King said it was an act of God that led him to find Nadia Bloom in a thick swamp early today. “God directed me to her,” King said hours after finding the 11-year-girl alive. A day earlier, the 44-year-old University of Central Florida alum was part of a volunteer search crew that had been unable to find Nadia. But at first light today, King, a military contractor, entered the woods armed with two cell phones, his shoes taped to his feet and some food and water to give Nadia if she was found. He prayed,...

    Well. It looks like the Democrats will spend this weekend threatening all the House member to vote this garbage in. I think I am going to go home and just drink myself into an oblivion and hopefully somehow a miracle will happen. I have called all my Congresscritters and Senators. I have done all I can. I can not imagine having to live in America under Commie rule. The players and sellouts have been amazing. Hopefully one day..I will be able to piss on their graves. Bottoms Up!!

    “A miracle is a violation of the laws of nature; and as a firm and unalterable experience has established these laws, the proof against a miracle, from the very nature of the fact, is as entire as any argument from experience can possibly be imagined” (David Hume). That quote, taken from the Scottish philosopher David Hume, would summarize what the average person believes about miracles. Miracles are impossible because they violate laws of nature, and the very nature of these laws dictates that they are inviolable. Certainly in discussing the Christian faith with unbelievers the Christian evangelist often encounters this...

    Mark Hemingway, staff writer for Danish publication Politiken, asserts The Islamic Boy in the Oval Office is greater than Galilee’s Jesus. Remember the Beatles? Didn’t they claim the same for their elevated position on the planet? Ooops. Didn’t happen.

    A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its hiding place in the closet. She poured the change out on the floor and counted it carefully. Three times, even. The total had to be exactly perfect. No chance here for mistakes. Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her way 6 blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief sign above the door. She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some attention, but he was...
