This is a great story.
When I wrote about St. Gianna, I offered some points about miracles.
I hereby put to you several points to consider, any of which might serve as a starting point for comments below:
- Saints are presented to us by Holy Mother Church for “the two I’s”: imitation and intercession.
- As all Christians are called to imitate Christ, we also must experience self-emptying and the Cross, abandonment to providence and self-donation. We must be willing to lose everything.
- We are not alone: the Church Militant and the Church Triumphant are closely knit, interwoven in charity. We on earth must intercede for each other and believe and ask for the intercession of the saints.
- God makes use of the weak to demonstrate His might and love.
- If we do not believe in miracles, we do not ask for them. If we do not ask for them, they will not be granted.
- Our life of faith is noticed by non-believers and they are not unaffected.
- What a difference a bishop (and a priest) can make!
- How often do you invoke the help of the saints and holy angels?
- God’s ways are not our ways.
- No one is too small to be an occasion of grace for others.
