Father Malachy's Miracle
Father Malachy believes the day of miracles has not passed, and in the heat of an argument declares that the night club standing at the corner might be moved and set down elsewhere, if one had sufficient faith. and before he knows what he is saying, Father Malachy promises to perform this miracle that very evening at nine sharp! Inside the night club the miracle occurs on schedule, when the club rises and is carried away to a lonely rock in the ocean. the miracle is hailed throughout the world and crowds of people flock to the scene. Father Malachy, expecting that mankind will rejoice in a renewed faith, faces problems he had never foreseen. How embarrassing to his Bishop to have a first-rate miracle on his hands! a disapproving Cardinal declares that the Church cannot formally approve. the night club owner realizes the sensational value of this, and does tremendous business. Malachy is further crushed when he learns that an American business man wants to syndicate the whole affair. In consternation over the behavior of the patrons of the club, Malachy repeats the miracle and transfers the club back to its original place.
adapted from the novel of Bruce Marshall
