Weird Saints

Q: Some stories about the saints are pretty weird. Were there really people who could bilocate, heal diseases, read other people’s souls, and stuff like that?

A: Yes, it’s true! You might want to think of it this way: God can do anything, right? Stories about Jesus healing the sick don’t sound strange because He’s God. He can do anything. When you hear about one of the saints healing the sick or performing some other miracle, it’s not that the saint you’re hearing about is some kind of mutant with superpowers or anything. It's actually God working through the saint to do His will.
