Maybe this will help…
Bernard Orchard’s A Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture explains the miracles of Mark 16:17-18 in this way:
When sending the Apostles on a temporary mission in Palestine, Christ gave them power to cast out demons in order to strengthen the appeal of their preaching. Now he promises to believers miraculous signs to guarantee the truth and divine origin of the doctrine which they had accepted (Heb. 2:4). The promise is made to the community of the faithful rather than to each individual believer. In the early days of the Church, possibly because of a skeptical and hostile world to which the Gospel and Church were still new, some of these manifestations more frequent than in later times. But Christ’s promise is not limited to a particular period. In every age miracles have given proof that Christ abides with the Church.
Basically, Mark 16 isn’t signs needed to prove that we have faith but was to confirm the truth of Christ’s message. This was far more needed back then, in a pagan world, than it is today. However, miracles still exist in the Catholic Church in ever age.
To me in this day and age, with the technology we have, none of these are meaningful anymore because they can all be easily faked. And often are.
To me the greatest miracle that Jesus left us is the Catholic Church. No man made institution could spread as far as She has and last for 2000 years. Look back through history you can easily read about how many people, from within, have tried to tear Her down. Heck look at the current crisis, evil people withing the Church are dong it again. The only possible explanation, that She survives, is that She is guided by the Holy Spirit. Now to me that is the true miracle. If I were to believe She is not the Church founded by Christ, this would be giving human beings far to much credit. Face it we aren’t that good.
Welcome to CAF and congrats on being in RCIA.
One word of advice…Never stop asking questions.
WHY? is the the reason I am Catholic, only the Catholic Church has been able to give me sound logical answers when I ask.
