1 — The experimental evidence of divine action in the world is so abundant that anyone who seeks to discuss the existence of God without having studied it must be considered an incurable charlatan. What is a saint in the Catholic Church? He is a citizen who, through a lifetime of prayers, fasts, moral concentration and sacrifices, removed the obstacles that prevented God from manifesting in him. Then he begins to cross the fire without getting burned, to cure the most fearful illnesses through prayer, or, like S. Vicente Ferrer, to preach the Gospel for forty days and forty nights without sleeping, eating or going to the bathroom. When he dies, his body remains intact for more than a millennium, and his intercession, from the other world, continues to work miracles. All of this has been tested and documented with the most demanding scientific criteria by an institution that strives more to ward off false miracles than to proclaim the real ones. Do you know any Karl Marx, Bertrand Russell or Richard Dawkins who studied this documentation before starting to guess? Not really, they run away from it like cockroaches run away from the light. They are of an proven intellectual cowardice, like lion tamarins playing lions.
2 — The effects of the Eucharist spread far beyond the Catholic world. The good it inspires in us is radiant. It is impossible, for those studying history, to ignore that ALL the institutions that do some good to the needy were created by the Catholic Church and only by it: hospitals, maternity hospitals, free education, leprosariums, orphanages, laws protecting women and children, abolition of slavery already in the ancient world, etc. Only through the Church did charity enter human history. After a few centuries, it is as if all this was born in trees or was the creation of the beautiful modern world.
