Miracles are a legitimate proof for God’s existence while the reality of evil is not a proof for His “non-existence.”

  1. I loved this video. It seems almost everyday someone is telling me God doesn’t exist and it’s hard to argue with someone who doesn’t understand the concept of Faith. Some great counter arguments here. Thank you Father!

  2. Thank you father for I know God has loved me and I have felt many little miracles that other people put down to luck. I know better. I have been suffering with fibromyalgia for many years now, but I do not suffer in vain, I offer up my sufferings in atonement and reparation to God from my family the world and myself. I have also had a heartattack and that night in the hospital my husband (who has never said the rosary before) and I prayed the rosary. The next day when I was sent to a hospital for treatment they were stunned. One said what do you think happened and the other said I don’t know what do you think happened. When all was done they said my veins were as clear as a thirteen year old and could not explain why I had the heart attack. I knew what happened but it is hard for others to understand when I try to explain it to them.

  3. This was a good video but I’m having a great deal of problems with the idea that suffering can be redemptive. Having been an Evangelical for many years and being taught that suffering is an attack of the devil because you have some sin in your life you didn’t confess, it is hard for me to get that out of my head. I’m glad to be catholic but only sorry that I waited until I was 53 to convert. And no, I do not see how anything in my life fits in with some greater “plan.” I have felt God made a mistake creating me, that I have no place in his body, something like the appendix in a natural body that medical science sees no reason for and as if my only reason for existance is to take up valuable space, air and natural resources that could be better used by someone else.

    • Do not despair. Temptation is an attack from the devil, not suffering. Suffering and death are consequences of sin, not the sin itself. That is, suffering is, in many cases, a just punishment for our sins and is to be borne. Carry your cross and follow Him. Suffering will never get in your way from following God, only sin and despairing because you are suffering. But, don’t worry about, you know, “feeling crummy” as being the sin of despair, because the sin of despair is to despair of God’s mercy and his existence and such, not to be suffering and in pain and feel awful.

      You should read some stuff about prayer if you are crippled in body. Prayer is the movement of the soul to love, as some saints have said and doesn’t require great strength or anything of the like. Do not seek out your “place” because you are already in your place, silly! The Catholic Church! Love God as you are, with the gifts you have been given.

      Unite your sufferings to the passion of Christ that he bore out of love for us. That might sound, well, far fetched, but it is a mystery. The Pascal Mystery. You are part of the Mystical Body of Christ, and so may participate in Christ’s redemptive mission in this way.

      Strive for holiness and your prayers will have great effect. Become a saint! Intercede for others.
