During the periods before Nativity and Pascha we often see programs and stories explaining how the miraculous events depicted in the Bible couldn’t have happened.

But St. Nektarios of Aegina explains miracles like this:

Miracles are not impossible from a logical standpoint, and right reason does not deny them. Natural laws do not have the claim to be the only ones, nor are they threatened with being overturned by the appearance of other laws, supernatural ones, which also are conducive to the development and furtherance of creation…Miracles are a consequence of the Creator’s love for His creatures.

"As an Eastern Catholic (Melkite), I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your site. The music is beautiful and uplifting, and the messages are food for my soul. Though we are still separated, I still feel a deep love and affection for my Orthodox brothers and sisters. May our Blessed Lord reconcile us as one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church as a testimony to a world that is perishing and needs us! Thanks again!"
