You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery;'                but I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.                If your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.                If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off, and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.                'It was also said, 'Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorce,'                but I tell you that whoever puts away his wife, except for the cause of sexual immorality, makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries her when she is put away commits adultery.                'Again you have heard that it was said to them of old time, 'You shall not make false vows, but shall perform to the Lord your vows,'                but I tell you, don't swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God;                nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.                Neither shall you swear by your head, for you can't make one hair white or black.                But let your 'Yes' be 'Yes' and your 'No' be 'No.' Whatever is more than these is of the evil one.                'You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.'*                But I tell you, don't resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.                If anyone sues you to take away your coat, let him have your cloak also.                Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.                Give to him who asks you, and don't turn away him who desires to borrow from you.                'You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor,* and hate your enemy.*'                But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you,                that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven.

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.
