>>Why is miracle always in quotes?
I know what you mean. If we could visualize the thoughts of journalists, there would put quotes around the word God also, to show that they don't believe in Him either - only in themselves.<<
Heh, heh. It's in quotes because it appears to be a silly claim. I know the article says: "Scientists have confirmed that the substance inside the closed vial is blood but cannot explain why it regularly turns to liquid."
Sorry, that's not enough. What scientists? What tests did they perform?
Let me put it this way, and I quote (but I don't remember who): "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."
That is why the word "miracle" is in quotes, and any respectable reporter outside The Sun would do the same.

This is why it's a miracle. It's been happening for hundreds of years
