The Real Miracle

Father Francisco at Daily Mass at St. Martins of Tours:

"The miracle of the gospels is not that Christ said to the blind--"see"
or to the lame, "walk"

The miracle is that Christ tells us "love", and we love

He says "forgive", and we forgive.

We are called to love our enemies, we pray for those who persecute us . . .

By doing these actions we call others to Christ."

I'm amazed at how much you always seem to hear at mass. I'm lucky if I hear two or three sentences when I go by myself with the kids. It's definitely an exercise in consistency rather then a particularly mind/spirit stimulating event. Good job for listening!

Excellent observations, forgiveness and praying for those who persecute us is miraculous, and Christians have done it to two millennia and counting, also miraculous!!

It's true- you do seem to quote things from Mass quite a bit- that's really wonderful!!!

Nice post.
