A miracle is, as it were, a gesture which God makes. As a man ◇◇◇ sits quietly & then makes an impressive gesture, God lets the world run on smoothly & then accompanies the words of a saint by a symbolic occurrence, a gesture of nature. It would be an instance if, when a saint speaks || has spoken, the trees around him bowed as if in reverence. – Now do I believe that this happens? I don't.
