This week’s tale from my podcast Stories of the Unexpected is my account of how I witnessed the sun spinning on a visit to Medjugorje in the mid-1980’s. It’s a strange tale because this sort of miracle is so difficult to understand. I take a moment to not only tell what happened, but ask what this could mean and what sort of a miracle it really is.

We know that the sun physically did not spin, just as we know that at Fatima in 1917 the sun did not plunge to the earth. We know enough about the physical world to know that the sun can’t do these things. The sun can’t plunge to the earth. It is millions of times bigger than the earth. Therefore the miracle did not take place in the physical realm, but it did take place in an objective way within our perception. So what happened?
