Sundays 10am CT
Author and MiracleHunter.com creator Michael O’Neill delves into the fascinating world of miracles and takes listeners on a hunt that reveals what constitutes a miracle, how miracles are investigated and approved, and the role they play in the lives of the faithful. Starting with the miracles of the Gospels and early Christianity and considering the claims of the miraculous made in our modern age, the program will take a deeper look at how these supernatural events not only have encouraged and strengthened the faith of individuals but have also had a transformative effect on the Church throughout history. This program explores the instrumental role they have played in the foundation of religious orders, the inspiration of some of Catholicism’s most famous devotions and the construction of some of the world’s most magnificent churches.
From the prodigious apparition and miraculous image of Guadalupe and the inexplicably incorruptible bodies of great Saints to the miracles of the Eucharist and those who bear the wounds of Christ, listeners will journey through the wonders that have inspired the fascination and faith of believers for centuries.
