Come explore the miraculous with "Miracle Hunter" Michael O'Neill!

O'Neill, a graduate of Stanford University, member of the Mariological Society of America, and host of the television series "Miracle Hunters", takes you on an amazing tour of miracles large and small, and answers some of our most burning questions:

  • Are miracles all that important?
  • What do miracles have to do with me?
  • How does the Church determine if a miracle is valid?
  • What do miracle cures have to do with canonization?
  • Do saints perform miracles?
  • What are apparitions and why do they appear?
  • What's a "Eucharistic miracle"?
  • Can statues, icons, or effigies really be miraculous?
  • What about incorruptibles and stigmata?

Thoroughly researched and documented, Exploring the Miraculous will enlighten and fascinate, but most of all will guide us to Christ, who is the center of our lives and the true object of our faith.
