And if thy hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed, rather than having thy two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life halt, rather than having thy two feet to be cast into hell.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thine eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell;                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Journalist and writer Vittorio Messori is the author of numerous books that have been translated all over the world. A tireless inquirer into the reasons underlying his belief in Jesus Christ, he has conducted a fascinating study of the most striking Marian miracle ever to occur. The miracle, to which we devoted considerable space in our last issue, took place on March 29, 1640, in Calanda, a small town in the Spanish province of Aragon. It consisted in the restoration, nearly two and a half years after its amputation, of the right leg to the living body of a young peasant and devotee of Our Blessed Mother of Pilar in Saragossa. The event made a huge stir in its day. It was immediately investigated and, after a long and exhaustive inquiry, certified as an authentic miracle.

Vittorio Messori has made it his mission to reacquaint the world with this forgotten event. After making many visits to Calanda and Saragossa and spending countless hours poring over the inquiry records and holding discussions with local experts, he has produced a remarkable chronicle of one of the most astounding and most thoroughly documented mysteries in history. The resulting book, entitled simply The Miracle, promises the reader not only a fascinating reading experience, but also a deeply spiritual one.

The fact of a limb being restored to a living body two years after it was amputated explodes the elaborate constructions of those who would question the existence of God. In his bestseller, The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins is merely the most recent in a long line of atheistic polemicists who would convince readers that believers are victims of a dangerous delusion.

When confronted with the plain fact of the Miracle of Calanda, the doctrinaire claims of Richard Dawkins with all their intellectual arrogance, dogmatism, and lack of tolerance for the views of believers, lose every shred of validity and only highlight the fact that it is not belief in God but atheism that rests on a grand delusion.
