Now he shares in extraordinary detail what he has learned about miracles and their meaning for Catholics today.

Miracles help give us a firm faith in Divine Providence
Adam Blai is a Catholic expert in demonology and exorcism, and he has written a truly enlightening book on miracles recognized as genuine by the Catholic Church. This is an excellent, sensible guide to miracles that shows good judgment. The book defines miracles and lists miracles recognized as genuine by the Catholic Church. It’s noteworthy that miracles have consistently occurred from the days of the Old Testament down to the present day. Blai points out that possessions by demons are relatively rare, but they do occur. The book notes that possession by demons results when people dabble in the occult and invite the demons in. The powers and abilities of demons- such as moving objects and making noises - are discussed, as well as their fear of holy objects such as genuine relics of the saints. There are many counterfeit miracles promoted by hucksters, and Blai points out the way to identify genuine miracles is to note that real miracles draw us closer to God and they provide people with clarity and peace. The Catholic Church investigates plausible claims of miracles and provides guidance as to whether a miracle is worthy of belief. Miracles are defined as unexplained events that God uses to draw people closer to Him. But miracles in the sense of being amazing events have definitely occurred several times in history. The emergence of life is a miracle, and the emergence of human beings capable of abstract thought is another stunning miracle. That the universe seems extremely fine-tuned for life is another miracle. And that human science has advanced to such an amazing level is another miracle. The miracles in the Bible are evidence that Christianity is true, and those miracles are credible. Miracles give us evidence that God is real and cares about humanity, and so they give us hope. Adam Blai points out that God sometimes responds to prayers for help with miracles, and that’s good to know when you’re in a tough spot.
