    The Inconvenient Host Dec 10 Posted by Mundabor Francischurch truly is something.  An accidentally dropped Host is recovered and handled in the proper way, after which it appears that… it starts to bleed.  Miracle? We will never know.  A potentially bleeding host is an inconvenience for the Diocese of Buffalo, awakening the possibility, frightening to them, that there might be a God after all, and that He may have targeted Francisbishops like Bishop Malone and his auxiliary, Bishop Grosz.  The linked article states that the priest witnessing the potential miracle, Father Loeb, promptly informed both Malone and Grosz, and that both told...
  • Why Don’t We See Miracles Like the Apostles Did?

    The Gospel Coalition ^ | Justin Holcomb
    Many contemporary Christians feel disconnected from the vibrant, Spirit-filled ministries of the prophets and apostles described in the Bible. In the Old Testament, God seemingly took the people of Israel through miraculous event after miraculous event. In the New Testament, those who watched the ministry of Jesus were seized with amazement at the miracles he performed (Luke 5:25), and the apostles in the early church regularly performed signs and wonders among the people (Acts 5:12).  Yet today, such miraculous events seem rare and, when we do hear reports of miracles, many Christians are skeptical. At the very least, we...

    One Of Many Miracles Jesus’ disciples were greatly impressed at the miracles He was performing as they went about their evangelical business. He was healing the sick, restoring sight to the blind, regularly dodging death in various attempts on His life, and He even restored life to people who had died. Miracles were certainly flowing from the merciful heart of a loving God. But the miracles were also intended to drive home the authenticity of Jesus’ divinity and to underscore His invitation for our salvation. Just as we are told throughout Scripture, Jesus Christ - whether you want to hear...

    Sope Aluko, a Christian actress born in Nigeria who holds U.S. and British citizenship, said that the set of "Black Panther" (2018) felt "almost like church." "During breaks we shared our testimony of how we got to where [we] did and most of the people were testifying to God's miracles, it was almost like church," Aluko told Okay Africa's Ezinne Mgbeahuruike. Mgbeahuruike had asked her, "How was it working alongside such heavy hitters like Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, and Forest Whitaker?" The actress responded that the "Black Panther" set "felt very familiar and like home." "We had early call...

  • Massive Volcano Near Naples Begins Rumbling

    12/23/2016 2:45:57 PM PST · by marshmallow · 45 replies
    A volcanic field off the shore of Sicily, near Naples, has become active, scientists report. The Campi Flegrei volcano is much larger than nearby Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano whose eruption destroyed the ancient city of Pompei. An eruption of this “supervolcano” could endanger much of Europe. News of the volcanic activity was made public less than a week after the blood of St. Januarius failed to liquefy when displayed in the Naples cathedral. Sicilians have long believed that when the miracle of St. Januarius does not occur, disaster will follow for the people of Naples. A supervolcano caused the largest...

Denver, Colo., Dec 29, 2016 / 02:32 pm (CNA).- What do a grilled cheese sandwich and the tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe have in common?Both bore what appeared to be images of Mary. One was determined to be authentically miraculous, the other was not. Not to spoil any secrets, but it’s not Our Lady of the Grilled Cheese that converted Mexico and continues to draw millions of people on pilgrimage every year.But have you ever wondered just how the Church determines the bogus from the...

    The week after Christmas, leading up to the New Year, can be the richest time for reflection. Holiday gift-buying is over, the presents are unwrapped or even returned, and not much happens in the news. One can sit back and contemplate those moments in which the Christmas spirit overcomes worldly concerns, such as an impromptu sighting of a star on a dark night and wondering what it was like 2,000 years ago in Israel, which was Roman Judea at the time. Or watching a baby smile, eliciting a mother’s tender touch. Or seeing a new father’s protective presence. In “O...

    Boy was I wrong. All along I had Trump at between 62 and 64 million votes. Our overly optimistic friend "Sundance" at was completely off the charts unrealistic, with a projection of 73 million. Yes, Trump won the electoral college---as I predicted---big. As of today I think he is at 304. Another 720,000 votes in seven states would have given him an additional 43 electoral votes. But unfortunately I was right in another prediction: the margin would be large, but each state would be decided by a small fraction of voters. Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina, and Florida all hinged...

    This month marks the 43rd anniversary of the Yom Kippur War. We have been fed some false information about this war. For starters, Israel did not strike first unlike in the 1967 Six day war when Israel was forced to launch a pre-emptive strike as her enemies amassed on her borders and as the UN stood aside and allowed them to do so. The Arabs shot first  On the night of September 25, King Hussein secretly flew to Tel Aviv to warn Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir of an impending Syrian attack. Throughout September, Israel received eleven more warnings...

    As election day approaches, Californians are seeing Bernie Sanders giving sermons on the high-def TV mount. He sounds wonderful on the telly as he promises to deliver his children out of the bondage of work, tuition and life’s obligations; and he will eventually lead them into a land of persistent rainbows where everything is free. If his promises continue to grow, his campaign may soon force businesses to pay people to take goods from their stores. The liberals that I know here are swooning over Bernie’s promises and pitches; he is their savior. His promises are like the old biblical...

    In new faith film Miracles from Heaven, which is based on a true story, actress Jennifer Garner plays Christy Beam, the mother of a young girl Annabel (Kylie Rogers) who is diagnosed with an incurable and painful disease. Because of the illness, pressure on the young family was high as Annabel had to undergo numerous hospital appointments and procedures. However, one day Annabel was involved in a freak accident and fell from a tree and hit her head. When she came to, doctors discovered she'd somehow been cured. "I mean there's reason there's a movie and a book about it,"...

    It seemed impossible. But the emergency room doctors were telling Christy and Kevin Beam that their 9-year-old daughter Annabel wasn’t hurt. Annabel, who had tumbled headfirst 30 feet to the bottom of a hollow cottonwood tree on the family’s farm in Burleson, Texas, had no head injuries, no brain damage and no spinal trauma, the doctors said. No broken bones or internal injuries—only a few minor bumps and bruises. A concussion, at most. Annabel had spent several hours inside the tree, most of that time unresponsive, as rescue teams strategized the best way to free her. When they finally succeeded,...

    Pope Francis in January will publish the first book of his papacy, written in an interview format with Italian journalist and Vatican expert Andrea Tornielli. The book's world-wide release on Jan. 12 will coincide with a special jubilee "year of mercy" that Pope Francis has called to reach out to alienated members of the church and to non-Catholics in need. In the new book, "The Name of God Is Mercy: A Conversation with Andrea Tornielli," the pope "discusses mercy, a subject of central importance in his teaching and testimony, and in addition sums up other ideas-reconciliation, the closeness of God-that...

    Introduction : In the first centuries of the Church it was the custom to give to little children who had not yet lost the innocence of their baptism the "Consecrated Species" which remained after the Communion of the Faithful. One day, a child the son of a Jewish Glass Founder of Constantinople while going to school with other "Christian Children" had followed them to the Church and innocently presented himself like the others and received the fragments of the "Holy Eucharist". A Frightful Ordeal : Having returned home, he narrated simply to his Father what he had done. The Father,...

    The events took place at the El Goloso military base, located near the Spanish capital, seat of the nation's armored infantry brigade "Guadarrama." According to several Spanish news sites, including Infovaticana and Religión en Libertad, a fire broke out that was impossible to control, burning most of the surrounding vegetation. Once the flames were extinguished, to the soldiers’ surprise, in the middle of the charred area, stood a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes—totally undamaged! What's more, the soldiers were shocked to see that the grass near the statue had not been touched by the flames and that it was...
