Excerpt from A Handbook of Christian Symbols and Stories of the Saints: As Illustrated in Art
That some of the miracles attributed to the saints should have been merely fabled, need not startle nor scandalize even the Catholic reader, nor excite prejudice against the great mass which rest on evidence at least as firm as that on which we ac cept the records of profane history; for, to quote again from the above-named eminent authority, it as little derogates from the supernatural gift residing in the Church that miracles should have been fabricated or exaggerated, as it prejudices her holiness that within her pale good men are mixed with bad.
