I wish at least one of the miracles that would be required for sainthood would be a "hard miracle". That is for example one that can't be manufactured. Let's see.........have new leg grow on a war injured amputee; have a person who has been dead and buried for at least a week be brought back to life; have someone who is beheaded have his head reattached with no loss of function. I just have a bit of a problem with all the soft miracles that see to pass muster.

Very good post. There are no such things as miracles. People simply WANT to believe in them.
