What Is A Miracle? Heed Ecclesiastes.
A miracle is something ordinary and extraordinary, but special. It is something fascinating, honest, and supernatural. Take St. Therese little miracles of Jesus. And take the Father GOD’s miracle of Jesus on the cross for His love to humanity.
Stories about magic, myth and wonders are around. But miracles are something different. They can’t compare to any human standard or explanation. So be it. Everyday, the life we have is an evidence of miracles. And as we were born, we would live, then later we would die, too.
Heed Ecclesiastes 3:1-8; There Is a Time for Everything
There is a right time for everything.
Everything on earth has its special season.
There is a time to be born and a time to die.
There is a time to plant and a time to pull up plants.
There is a time to kill and to heal.
There is a time to destroy and a time to build.
There is a time to cry and a time to laugh.
There is a time to be sad and a time to dance.
There is a time to throw away stones and a time to gather them.
There is a time to hug and a time not to hug.
There is a time to look for something and a time to stop looking for it.
There is a time to keep things and a time to throw away things.
There is a time to tear apart and a time to sew together.
There is a time to be silent and a time to speak.
There is a time to love and a time to hate.
There is a time for war and a time for peace.

However, don’t feel helpless in fasting, but let others see how being strong for God becomes a cause and a light to the world.

The script comes from New Testament books and from the diaries of St. Anne.
Moreover, processions, passion plays and holy hours are celebrated in several places this Holy Week. Even drama’s like “Jesus Christ Superstar” goes onstage.
