On miracles

Artist: Yakov Kapkov

I think if we took the following to heart, a large portion of the seeming conflict between religion and science would dissolve: not so much upon...healing power coming suddenly near us from afar but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that, for a moment, our eyes can see....what is there around us always.

-- Willa Cather

And this one:

Miracles do not happen in contradiction to nature, but only in contradiction to that which is known to us of nature.

-- St. Augustine


  1. Good posts! I'm with St. Augustine on this one.

  2. Me too! May we all see miracles around us today.
