MIRACLES AND IMPERFECTIONS

I just could not understand why men were not created equal. There are the rich and the poor, the beautiful and the ugly, the tall and the short, the mentally capacitated and the mentally incapacitated and a growing list of contrasting personalities which are sheer signs of imperfections in human beings. The study of science on heredity and genes will answer these questions. But, there are matters which, science does not have scientific explanations.

Just like the mentally deranged woman, a frequent sight on my way to my mother office, who delivered a healthy baby boy under a tree, and may have personally cut the umbilical cord of the baby herself! It's a little miracle how the baby came out of the womb of her mentally handicapped mother. She does not want the baby to be taken away from her, she clutches the baby tightly to her body.

Just last week, I read in the papers about a fetus found in the restroom of an international airplane, allegedly flushed by the mother, intentionally.

Amid these happenings, i sometimes say maybe God is imperfect Himself, the reason why there are angels and demons. Well, i am not here to rant against my faith in the Divine Providence. I am a Catholic but my faith sometimes waivers, as to the wisdom of why all these things have to happen. But, i believe in miracles and maybe my faith can be likened to a cellfone, which has erratic signal, at times.

demons used to be angels. but they were jealous of the power of God, and wanted to take over.
