    I like hearing stories like this, even though the lab report reveals that the blood sample tested was AB Positive, whereas I’m O Positive and therefore only a distant relative of Jesus (if that).

    I do take this report seriously, although not as conclusive proof (is there such a thing as ‘conclusive proof ‘ when it comes to miracles?) of anything. The chain of evidence recounted here is not strong, especially because the lead scientist is told where the sample came from. He is not told that until after he conducts his tests, mind you – but the most enthusiastic part of his testimony occurs after he is so informed.

    To be Christian means to believe in miracles. You cannot be a Christian unless you do – the Resurrection being the miracle upon which I rest my case. But what does believe in miracles mean? When I partake of the Eucharist, I believe what the Church teaches, but I do so through intellectual commitment, with contemporaneous emotional experiences – like the sensation of hair tingling on my scalp, which has happened – being secondary, if not illusory.

    While respecting many (not all) accounts of post-Biblical miracles, and revering many (not all) alleged relics, I think of them all as secondary, because our Faith does not depend on them.

    A thought experiment: What would you do if you saw someone secret the Host in his pocket?

    What I and any Catholic has a responsibility of doing is to tell the person that he needs to consume the host right then and there or give it to the priest, and if he doesn’t then we need to tell the priest immediately !!!
