Do Miracles Happen?
Let me start this by saying I am a realist, a pragmatists, when someone asks me if the glass is half full or half empty, I am most likely looking for my glass because I have lost it.
It is not that I don’t believe in miracles it is that I am looking for the proof. But I would have to say that I just might have to being believing.When I lose something I always say a quick prayer to St. Anthony. Some of you regular readers may remember last December when my Mother-in-law was hit by a pick up truck while crossing the road one morning. When my husband called me to give me the news, he had just pulled into work and immediately pulled out. By he drove East to West across Tulsa, my mother in law had been moved to a Level 1 Trauma Center. My oldest was home from school the day of the accident exempt from semester finals. She and I immediately began packing bags for everyone. We did not expect her to make it through the surgeries. According to my mother in law at one time they gave her a 5% chance of living, at another time they suspected brain damage and said that she had a 5% chance of being able to recognize a person as a human being. The day after doctors said that she started to wake up.
At one point Father Kirby suggested that we pray to Blessed Seelos,
miracles had been attributed to him. I said a few quick intercessory prayers to Blessed Seelos, and my husband said a novena to him. Not wanting to put all of our eggs in one basket we also took some holy dirt from Chimayo to her. What has happened to my mother in law is nothing short of a miracle. She who was given a 5% chance of living just celebrated another birthday this past Holy Saturday. The most amazing part to some of you is that my mother in law knows nothing of this, and she is not Catholic, (Deacon G converted)
Do you believe in miracles? Have you ever experienced one?
