This is a resuscitation, not as impressive as a resurrection.Man brought back to life after collapsing while playing football
The church said they remain steadfast in their belief that not only can people be healed but they can be resurrected.
"God's power, simply put, knows no bounds," said the church.
"Whilst this should be the celebrated reality, the unfortunate truth is that miracles which are delivered through the power of God are now no longer celebrated for ... being divine interventions. They are - conversely, in fact - attacked and ridiculed, along [with] those who believe that through the grace and power of God anything is possible.
"We are accused of being charlatans and those who share our belief in the divine power of God are labelled naive," added the church.

Paramedics/doctors in SA perform 100s of miracles like this every day. Imagine what you can do with a bit of training and science.
It has been said that St. Patrick (c. 389-c. 461) performed a thousand miracles. And why not? Many more (40,000) were prudently attributed to St. Vincent Ferrer, the Dominican missionary and "Angel of Judgment."
Moreover, the author knows of no saint for whom there are claimed so many resurrection miracles during one apostolic lifetime as for St. Patrick; there were as many as 39 of these wonders. Thirty-three are mentioned in one specific report:
"For the blind and the lame, the deaf and the dumb, the palsied, the lunatic, the leprous, the epileptic, all who labored under any disease, did he in the Name of the Holy Trinity restore unto the power of their limbs and unto entire health; and in these good deeds was he daily practiced. Thirty and three dead men, some of whom had been many years buried, did this great reviver raise from the dead, as above we have more fully recorded." link
The book "Saints Who Raised The Dead" by Father Albert J. Hebert documents true stories of 400 resurrection miracles in the lives of the Saints
