Folly of Contemporary Atheism

Father Baron talks about the foolishnes of contemporary atheism.

He says the slogan, "God probably doesn't exist, so stop worrying and enjoy life" is nonsense because the absence of belief in God doesn't cause us to stop worrying or desiring something beyond us and the absence of these concerns doesn't result us enjoying life. He says on the contrary our desire for God is a craving for what is beyond us, which only God can satisfy.

I would love to know how an atheist would explain the Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano?
We need to pray for these people, to counteract the power that the devil has over them.
