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.

"Greetings from Sweden. I am so happy to have found this radio station! I love listening to it, and I have listened to it for years. The Swedish church doesn't have this lovely musical tradition, and it´s a pity. I would like to experience an Orthodox service some day with this kind of lovely music. It is pure spiritual joy and praise!"
