Over at Patheos today, I'm talking the miners rescue and our own!

I'm over at Summa This, Summa That drawing parallels between the wonderful rescue of the Chilean miners, and our own epic rescue.

Here's a snippet:

The distance from confinement to freedom was a twenty-minute half-mile ride in a claustrophobic rescue pod. 
Sometime after midnight on Wednesday October 13, 2010, the world began to watch in sheer joy, and perhaps sober disbelief, as the first of 33 Chilean miners, trapped for 68-69 days in their dark, womblike cavern of life, emerged.  Weeks of international effort and cooperation worked to set them free from the bowels of a collapsed mine after their record-breaking stay underground.
US media outlets called this rescue operation a miracle in its size and scope.
For those of us Catholics who are Marian-devoted, and who pay attention to things nuanced by the rhythm of the liturgical calendar, we smile in humble recognition of the date.
It is indeed a day for miracles.
