de Mello on Miracles

A man traversed land and sea to check for himself the Master's extraordinary fame.

"What miracles has your Master worked"? he said to a disciple.

"Well, there are miracles and miracles. 

In your land it is regarded as a miracle if God does someone's will.

In our country it is regarded as a miracle if someone does the will of God".

Anthony de Mello
