    While he parishoners are praying
    to the statue to be cured the
    Monsignor is saying "Oh, it's
    just because of the gold leaf that
    used to be up there." This is what
    I like about the Catholic Clergy.
    They are not given to hysterical
    assumptions when it comes to
    miracles and such.

    How do you feel about officially recognized miracles?

    The same way. I like the fact they
    scrutinize every claim from every
    possible angle doing their best to
    explain it away as not being a
    miracle. They're very level headed
    about this.

    This is in contrast to so many
    other religions and other branches
    of Christianity where the slightest unusual happening is
    accepted as God stepping in and
    cirumventing one of his own normal
    modus operandi.
