I'll just note 2 incidents from my childhood . . . crises in the family when Mother Prayed and God intervened.
1 . . . rain was coming up the river valley as usual . . . and our hay was drying in the field. We could not afford to have it wet and lose the hay
and thereby maybe the farm. The end result after her prayer was that it rained on 4 sides of the hay field but not on the hay field.
2. Another time, a small tornado took all the tin roofing off our chicken house, barn etc. and the tin was coming toward our adobe mud hut . . .
Mother uttered a prayer phrase . . . and I went out afterward with a ruler because I didn't believe what she and dad were discussing. The tin was
helter skelter all over the South part of our yard . . . and a line could have been drawn--it got to IIRC exactly 1" or maybe 1.5" close to the
house and no further in a fairly straight line as though a force field had stopped it.
I don't need to list more examples from my flawed walk with God.
The critical issue is for each individual to avoid missing out on eternal life in fellowship with the supreme essence of Love and Joy . . . freedom

In terms of the OP, the RCC has forsaken even its 300-400 AD founding understandings. The rot has set in a long time ago . . . Holy Spirit left the
edifice, on the whole, a long time ago.
