Here’s some of that good news some of us were looking for.

At a church in Connecticut, has there been a miracle? The bishop has asked the Vatican to investigate (https://nypost.com/2023/05/14/vatican-to-weigh-miracle-of-multiplying-hosts-at-connecticut-church/).

This happened in March. They were taking communion and ran way short of communion wafers. And then, inexplicably, they had more than enough. Nobody knew where it came from.  Somehow the host had multiplied itself.

Jesus did that twice, only on a much bigger scale. The prophet Elisha did it once (2 Kings 4:42-44).

They’ve got plenty of people who saw the miracle at St. Thomas Roman Catholic Church, on March 5, but no one’s sure how to prove they saw it. The miracle left no hard evidence. That’s true of many miracles. “I was blind, but now I see”–how do you prove that Jesus did that?

Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Read the whole chapter. Without faith, there’s no such thing as proof.
