CoC will say it didn't happen because they don't believe God does miracles anymore.

I believe God does miracles today but there are differing stories out there about this incident. We should not be to quick to declare this a miracle.

Of course it was. They could not get her out. Then they could after they were annointed.

Some time of miracle occurred.

One fire department does not have equipment in proper working condition or older outdated equipment and another fire department shows up with good equipment that works is not what I define as a miracle. Some churches have lower standards obviously, need I say more? I don't think so, the Catholic scandals speak for themselves.

The fire chief, Raymond Reed, had stepped back and came up to me and said he was concerned because he was out of options. His tools weren’t working and by that time, it was almost an hour and said I don’t know how we’re going to get her out,” Ralls County Sheriff’s Deputy Richard Adair told KHQA.

At that point the Hannibal fire department pulled up with fresh equipment and was able to free Katie. After getting her in the Air Evac helicopter, rescue workers said the priest was nowhere to be found.

Since you say you believe they do occur could you please be so kind as to provide an example of a miracle of which you do approve? One will be quite sufficient. Doesn't have to be anything major...just an example of extra-biblical divine intervention.

Although no one an say exactly what is and is not a miracle, I think these two examples are much closer. Here is a car crash and from other more detailed videos that I could not find the debris you see flying across the interstate is the body of the man. One video you had to sign because of the content and i never bothered, they may have flagged the one I was looking for, I don't know.

Another example is the case of a tornado a couple of years ago where a very small child was upstairs in a bed and the house was completely flattened. The child was found in a field unharmed.

I think it is far more possible there was divine intervention in these two examples than the one listed above. If a fire department shows up and their jaws of life are not working properly and another fire department brings a workable jaws of life how is that a miracle? I can think of other things on a personal level that would mean nothing to you but makes me believe there was divine intervention.

A lot of Protestants anoint with oil. If this were a Protestant would you (Mark and Mike) consider it a miracle? lol I don't even need an answer, as a famous lawyer once said "For the record".

First you say you "believe God does miracles today" then you say "although no one can say exactly what is and is not a miracle..."

Are those examples the best you can come up with? I say you are nuts and quite dizzy. Be honest for a change...all you wish to do is bash the Roman Catholic Church.

Perfectly honest and factual sentence. You cannot say what a miracle is and Catholic priests know not one iota about determining what a miracle is then anyone else. Look at you two Catholics and this situation. Not even close to a miracle, what ignorance.

Ignorance? Please quote for all of us where I have referred to this or any extra-biblical event as a miracle.

Not only are you the official infallible interpreter of the Bible you also speak for God to determine what is or is not a miracle. Are you a miracle.?

You want to keep God in your own human spirit driven box and think of him on your own human terms.

Sad.

You are correct, you never said this accident was a miracle as Mike did in post #2.

Look at post nine and Mark attempting to bash me for saying no one can exactly say what is and is not a miracle, even though I do believe God does miracles today. You seem to have no problem in post two declaring it a miracle although you want to make the false claim I am the one that can determine what is a miracle. What a typical Catholic warped mental exercise, no wonder we have tradition Catholic tradition declaring some of the things they do.

What do these men and women have in common? They all claim or claimed to be miracle workers and divine healers.

I don't follow those people. They are of the same company as those who claim the Pope is the vicar of Christ and their priests are the only ones that can forgive sins, administer the anointing of oil, the Eucharist, and water baptism. They are of the same flock.

Opps, and I just commented you on another thread about your improved behavior since you started taking your meds again. I may have spoken presumptively.

Sick puppy for sure. You follow the Baptist guy with the Latin phrases across the top of his masthead.

The Church has not and probably will not investigate as an official miracle in the Church. Too many to investigate. They mainly stay with those associated with canonization and personal revelations.
