Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Fr. Raphale Vereshack
Russian Orthodox (ROCOR)
I think the fact that the miracle of the Holy Light is not widely publicized gives it more credibility. We don't see anywhere that I can think of in the Gospels where our Lord heals someone and then 'shows off.' He was actually rather discreet about it, in some cases telling those healed not to tell anyone that it was Him who healed them. On the other hand, we have many others today--such as 'charismatics' and/or 'pentecostals'--who tout their miracles even on TV...
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Mike Rizzio, SOLT
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
