      On Miracles:

      As to miracles, they oftentimes, while they
      profited another, have injured the one who
      had the power, by lifting him up to pride and
      vainglory, or maybe in some other way ...These
      then let us perform with much dilligence. For
      if you change from inhumanity to almsgiving,
      you have stretched forth the hand that was withered.
      If you withdraw from theaters and go to the church,
      you have cured the lame foot. If you draw back your
      eyes from an harlot, and from beauty not your own, you
      have opened them when they were blind. If instead of
      satanical songs, you have learned spiritual psalms,
      being dumb, you have spoken. These are the greatest
      miracles, these are the wonderful signs.

      St.John.Chrysostom.
      Homily XXIV, 1, on Matthew VII and
      XXXII, 10, 11, on Matthew IX. B#54, pp. 167, 218, 219.



      "It's later than you think....
      Hasten, therefore, to do the work of God."
