Concerning miracles

An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a miracle; and a miracle will not be given it, except the miracle of Jonah. (Mathew 16:4)
Miracles and signs impress people but generate little or no changes. Of course, at first people are strongly moved, but the emotions miracles cause dissipates so quickly that the witnesses return to their old ways without changing. Miracles incite men to comply with the supernatural and to imagine how God acts instead to be transformed through his word and to participate in the development of the world through their own choices and efforts.

About human’s story

And they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nations shall not lift up sword against nations. Neither shall they learn war anymore. (Isaiah 2:4)
This verse, written on a wall of the United Nations’ headquarters in New York bears witness of the dream of humanity to make of the world a place of love and peace. What long a way humanity will then have gone through since Adam and Eve left their carefree life in the garden in Eden!

To the saints and faithful

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, to the saints who are at Ephesus and who are faithful in Christ Jesus: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:1-2)
It is good to remember that the apostle who wrote this letter to the Ephesians is also the one who asserts in his letters (Romans 1:5) to have been appointed by God to bring the obedience of faith to the Gentiles. He also encourages the early Christians (and through them all those who will believe) to imitate him, consider his way of life and take him as model of faith.
