The Shroud of Turin is one of those Christian miracles that have garnered so much attention that there is a name for its scholarly study: Sindonology.  It’s existence is fascinating.  When I was going through Catechism, I found myself asking: why don’t Christians talk about these miracles?  Shouldn’t their existence convert more people?  Our new Pope Francis certainly hopes so.  This past Good Friday, the New York Times reported that a new introduction by Pope Francis was added to a previously-made documentary on the Shroud of Turin.  I would like to see that documentary if there are subtitles in English.

There are so many miracles in recent history.  Why aren’t people talking about them?  I must be naive to think these miracles would convert souls…

The Supernatural Case for Catholicism

Shameless Popery wrote an article about including supernatural events when making the case for Catholicism (or to the Christian faith, I’d say).  I am also guilty of the tendency to use only logical arguments to defend my faith.  The article by Joe Heschmeyer challenged me to reconsider this tendency.  So, I think I’m going to look into several miracles and write about my personal miracles.

These are some of the miracles that I’d like to look into:

  • The Lanciano Miracle
  • The Shroud of Turin
  • Fatima
  • St. Bernadette of Lourdes
  • St. John Vianney
  • Our Lady of Guadalupe
  • Statue of Akita
  • Therese Neumann
  • Marian Apparition of Zeitoun

These are some personal miracles I should at some point write about:
