"He said: Give place, for the girl is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn."-Mt 9:24, from today's Gospel
What God tells you is possible, is possible, even if the whole world tells you that it isn't, that it's too late to do anything now. If you don't ask for miracles you won't receive them. If God says it's possible, then that's because God wants things to happen that way, even if a lack of faith gets in His way and prevents Him from acting, for God forces Himself on no one. Even the woman with an issue of blood was cured because she believed, even though doctors for years had been telling her that it was impossible to be cured. Without faith in God as the cause and goal of all things, nothing can be done.
