What's wrong with this picture?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 24, 2006

The headline: Book of miracles shows late pope’s human side, author says.

Look: We're all humans. Most of us don't perform miracles.

And-- here's a bit of good news, if you're already feeling the strain of meeting public expectations-- you don't need to perform miracles to prove that you're human.

    JPII was like a father, but like every good father, he had a few weak spots. He was asleep at the switch (or preoccupied with the Soviets) when many bishops were appointed. Is it OK to pray for a few miraculous removals?

    "Whether or not we see these stories as miraculous signs, they show the human dimension of this pontificate – how the pope was close to people and touched their lives," said author Pawel Zuchniewicz. Can you think of a miracle that DOESN'T show charity and mercy to people? God truly loves squishy thinkers - he made so many of them.
