    Hello all,

    Miracles figure prominently in Orthodoxy and Catholicism (e.g. eucharistic miracles, uncorrupted bodies of saints, weeping statues and icons, etc. etc.). What is the Anglican perspective of miracles? Are there miracles associated with the Anglican Church (specifically post-Reformation) or with saints of the Anglican Church?


    Peace.

    There are miracles on a personal level. C. S. Lewis writes about when his wife Joy Davidman was suffering from bone cancer that an Anglican priest prayed and iirc anointed her and the cancer went into remission for some time. The bone healed so that they were able to travel to Greece. I'll have to dig up the quote.

    Yeah, I have a friend who had a huge cancer in his bowel/bladder, and after TONS of prayer from many people, he was referred to the top specialist in the country who performed some risky miraculous surgery, and now, my friend is cancer-free. It has been two years, so we still pray.

    I have also heard of miracles such as thousands coming to Christ over night (in my own town) from an Anglican church in my town.
    They're not all medical, though I do think it is usually the healing miracles that are noticed.
