  • 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...

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...

    Roman Catholicism was 300 years too late to be “the stone that … became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth” (Daniel 2:35). [This is the third installment of a three part series.]When former Protestant, Taylor Marshall, wrote Eternal City, he sought to explain why Christianity is necessarily Roman. “The Church,” he wrote, “receives the Roman empire” from its previous custodians. But in concluding this, Marshall has mistakenly transposed two kingdoms—both of which Daniel addressed, and both of which Daniel set against the background of the rise and fall of four world empires. One kingdom is of earth...
  • Six Poor Reasons for Rejecting the Miraculous

    06/07/2015 7:08:33 PM PDT · by DeweyCA · 70 replies
    Christian theology affirms a number of miracles, most importantly the atonement, the resurrection, the incarnation and the virgin birth. The secular mind dismisses these as tall-tales and myths produced by superstitious, pre-modern minds. However, it seems to us that the modern prejudice against miracles is not very rational. 1) Experience shows that miracles do not occur (Skip) 2) Science shows that miracles are impossible! (Skip) 3) If we believe in one supernatural event we might as well believe in Santa and flying reindeer! (Skip) 4) But surely miracles are so improbable, so extraordinary, that no amount of evidence could justify...

A house, or a kingdom, cannot be divided against itself.The synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke all record this profound event in the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ. After healing a demon-possessed man, Jesus is confronted by the Pharisees, the pious religious leaders of the time, who question what authority Jesus has to cast out demons. They suggest, since Jesus certainly can’t possibly be working through the power of God, that it must be Satan, the devil, that’s given Him the power to drive out the demonic.I think it’s safe to...

    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...

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...

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.

    It is a commonplace among believers in God's written word to express a longing to have lived in the times depicted within its pages. To have seen, perhaps even conversed with, such towering figures of faith as Abraham, Moses, Samuel, and Nehemiah. To thrill at the great victories God granted through Joshua, David, and Jehosaphat. To imagine as we read their still-fiery words, what it would have been like to hear the messages of Isaiah, Ezekiel, Hosea or Sts. Peter and Paul ring in our own ears. The Day-to-Day Grind Bible times seem so exciting — angels walked the earth...

    Kiev, April 20, Interfax - During 25 years from the date of Chernobyl accident the radiation level in the area of St. Elijah Church, the only church operating in the exclusion zone, was well below the level across the zone, Chernobyl disaster liquidators state. "Even in the hardest days of nineteen eighty six the area around St. Elijah Church was clean (from radiation - IF), not to mention that the church itself was also clean," president of the Ukrainian Chernobyl Union Yury Andreyev said in a Kiev-Moscow video conference on Wednesday. Now the territory adjacent to the church has the...

    On February 28, 2010, in Charismatic Gifts, False teaching, Real Truth, by admin My good friend, Charles Carrin, as a Baptist pastor for more than twenty-five years, was much like Apollos before Priscilla and Aquila “took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately” (Ac. 18:24-26). Like Apollos, he was “an eloquent man…and he was mighty in the Scriptures,” he “had been instructed in the way of the Lord” in Baptist schools, was “fervent in spirit,” and “was speaking and teaching accurately the things concerning Jesus,” meaning the Gospel of Christ’s sacrifice. However, Charles, like Apollos...

    "People like my friend Bob today have had miracles in their lives all over America during the past year because of that health care bill having passed, because a child under 18 who has a pre-existing illness cannot be denied insurance," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said on the Senate floor Thursday morning.

    Hurricanes, Tornados, Floods, Earthquakes...They call them acts of God. This morning as I took the kids to school, I saw an act of God painted on the eastern sky - pInk, orange and blue whisps of clouds illuminated by a sun just tucked under the horizon. Bad things happen in this world, but keep your eyes open for the good things, God creates miracles everyday. The next one is for you.

    Holy Spirit Indwelling Series – Part 6 Miraculous Indwelling of the Holy Spirit Today?This is the final article in a series examining the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. To date a non-miraculous literal indwelling has been rejected and left the question: “What benefit would it be anyway?” A representative indwelling of Deity and man demonstrating unity according to God’s purpose stands scripturally acceptable. However, the question yet to be answered is why not a miraculous indwelling of the Holy Spirit today? The miraculous must be explored so it can be accepted or rejected.There are various religions today which lay claim...

    A God of Miracles     Sydney S. ReynoldsFirst Counselor in the Primary General PresidencySydney S. Reynolds, "A God of Miracles", Ensign, May 2001, 12  I believe that all of us can bear witness to these small miracles.  With Moroni of old, I believe in a God of miracles. Moroni wrote to the people of our dispensation, “Behold, I will show unto you a God of miracles, … and it is that same God who created the heavens and the earth, and all things that in them are” (Morm. 9:11). Moroni proclaimed that Jesus Christ did many mighty miracles, that many mighty miracles...
