Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you                Pray without ceasing                For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured unto you                And we know and have believed the love which God hath in us. God is love; and he that abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him                Through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God                Verily I say unto you, Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven                Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven                It is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God

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.
