Francis engages the question in an interview with Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn of Closer to Truth. He cautions against overuse of the word “miracle.” For example, while beautiful and perhaps inspiring, the blooming of a flower is not miraculous, as a scientist can explain the precise genes and chemicals that cause the flower to bloom. However, Francis reminds us that while the prior of a true miracle — in which the physical laws really are suspended — is very, very low, it is not zero.
Ultimately, Francis asks three questions. “Do you believe in God?” “Do you believe in a God who is at least in part outside of nature?” “Do you believe in a God who is still active in modern times?” If the answers are yes, miracles are only a short jump away.
