Magic or Miracles?

In the latest installment in my series of reflections on the Sunday Readings, I explore the deeper meaning of the wonders and signs of Jesus we find in gospels.

"Magic or miracles? How we understand Jesus and his wonders is essential for understanding that this Sunday’s Gospel isn’t only a story about an isolated miraculous healing. That was the mistake the crowd made: they weren’t able to look beyond the healing to see that God was doing so much more. The healing of the deaf-mute was a sign of what God could accomplish in their lives, as well."
