LONDON, AUG. 23, 2006 (Zenit.org).- The Catholic Agency to Support Evangelization has launched a Web page on the miracles from the time of Jesus as well as from modernity.



CASE launched the page, "Miracles Do Happen," at http://www.life4seekers.co.uk/aplaceforgodinourworld/Miracles.html.

Started by the bishops of England and Wales in April 2004, CASE aims to support dioceses, parishes, schools, groups and individuals in proclaiming the Gospel.

The new Web page was launched to coincide with the broadcast of a BBC television series called "The Miracles of Jesus," which uses drama, special photography and computer-generated images to bring the miracles of Jesus to life.

Monsignor Keith Barltrop, CASE director, is lending his support to the TV series and has asked Catholics to invite non-Catholic friends, family members and neighbors to watch the programs.

"Your invitation could change someone's life," he urged. "Pope John Paul II repeatedly called for Catholics to seek new and dynamic ways of communicating and celebrating their faith so as to be of relevance to people living in these times."

The BBC series "has the potential to serve in precisely this way as a powerful tool of contemporary evangelization," explained Monsignor Barltrop.

The Web page launched by CASE asks: "Do miracles still happen? Did they ever happen in the past? Two thousand years ago, many believed that Jesus Christ performed them. Were they real or just tricks to astonish the crowds? Intrigued? To help you decide, explore the following resources."
