Sanctity and Miracles

I changed the first paragraph a bit. It read: "A Wonderworker is... a man or woman who has achieved such a level of theosis (Spiritual Transformation) and sanctity, that they are able to perform miracles. "

No doubt, miracles are typically linked to a person's sanctity, and, as a technical category of sainthood, the connection with sanctity is well established. However, I wanted to change the emphasis a little bit, since it is clear that God also does miracles sometimes in spite of a person's lack of sanctity. Miracles have been worked even through asses. — FrJohn (talk)
