Interesting comment on the Mother Blog (Amy)
[Sullivan writes] -"Personally, I've never been embarassed by the presence of physical miracles in the Gospels and believe them. But my own faith certainly doesn't rest on the need for such manifestations of divine power. For growing numbers of people, however, miracles are integral to the conversion experience and the lived faith. Just as in Jesus' time."
Another quotation comes to mind: "The jews want a sign; the greeks demand wisdom." Like Sullivan, I find myself in the greek camp on this and think the Church provides wisdom sufficient for faith.
