St. Anthony and Miracles Print E-mail
Tuesday, 15 June 2010 08:15

Many miracles are attributed to St. Anthony of Padua, among them blessing and eating food which had been poisoned by his enemiesand notbeing harmed; preaching to the fish who rose out of the river to listen; and bi-location when he remembered during preaching a sermon that he had to sing elsewhere inthe Brothers' choir.

The dictionary tells us that a miracle is "an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause." I have heard it said, and I think it is true, that miracles often take place in our physical world but we don't recognize them because of their frequency.

What about the miracle of life itself? When you think of the complex make-up of our bodies and how we are created: how a child grows in the womb cell by cell, how we can feel, touch, see, hear and taste; every morning that weawaken and take another breath can seem miraculous.

And miracles in nature occur everywhere: how the moon effects the ebb and flow of the ocean tides, howtiny blossomsflower intospectaculararrays of art, how strange andmarvelous animals exist in the depths of the ocean.

Althoughthese things are not outside the realm of nature, if you believe in a God who created them all, then He must be the Miracle Maker. Today let us thank and praise God for the miracles allaround us, and begrateful for another day to witness their wonder. I think St. Anthony would approve.

St. Anthony, pray for us!
