Miracles: A new film from St Anthony Communications

A new film has been released by St Anthony Communications. Available on DVD, the film is presented by Fr Marcus Holden and Fr Andrew Pinsent and also features Jamie and Joanna Bogle. From the DVD:
What are miracles? Are miracles possible and, if so, how do we know? Do miracles happen and, if so, what is their purpose? What attitudes should we take towards reports of miracles? How might miracles impact on our prospects for future happiness? What are the perspectives of science, theology, and philosophy on miracles today?

The exploration of miracles raises some of the most important spiritual, intellectual and personal questions that we face. An understanding of miracles is important for catechesis in parishes and in the home, for personal spiritual and intellectual growth, for devotions, as well as many courses in religious studies and the humanities in general today.

This film explores these questions from a Catholic perspective, informed by historical and modern discussions in science, philosophy, and theology, as well as cases of particular miracles, ancient and contemporary.

This film can be purchased from St Anthony Communications, and for readers in the USA, many of their popular titles can be purchased from Ignatius Press including:
