“You have five senses which put you in touch with the material and sensate passing world about you. But did you ever notice that when you wish to do deep thinking you shut your eyes, close the doors of the ear to the rattles of earth, for the more you shut out the things of earth, the more the Spirit of God speaks within you. You will learn more truth from the Spirit than from books, a the Apostles on Pentecost learned more about the Life of Christ than they did from three years of living with Him in an earthy way.
The Power of Our Blessed Lord while on earth was sometimes exercised through immediate personal contact, such as when He laid His Fingers on the eyes of the blind man. At other times He cured at a distance, as He did the servant of the centurion.”
