An initiative of the Hobart Archdiocese, the "Miraculous Events: Science Tests Faith" exhibition will consist of interactive and documentary styled presentations of more than 20 miracles, including eyewitness testimonies and findings from scientific investigations.
The miracles will include inexplicable healings from deafness, blindness, cancer, paralysis, and even death, said event organiser, Christine Wood, director of Hobart Archdiocese's Office of Evangelisation and Catechesis.
“It’s a fascinating tour de force of God’s personal engagement in the world today and man’s response to God,” Dr Wood said.
“An event would be called miraculous if science cannot explain its causes through nature or man-made means, and there’s evidence that a higher power, ultimately God, is at work.
“Scripture speaks of miracles performed by Jesus, the prophets and apostles. The Christian faith bears testimony that God continues to work miracles across the centuries to elicit faith and wonder as a response to his desire to enter into our lives.”
Exhibits of miracles from around the world will be on display at the Waterside Pavilion in Hobart, which will be open to the public on June 15-26.
Presentations will also be given by speakers including a panel of medical experts who will explore the scientific evidence for miraculous healings.
