  • Among the most important works in which this Eucharistic Miracle, which occurred in Rome in the year 595, is mentioned is The Life of Blessed Pope Gregory, written by a deacon named Paul in 787. It was the custom in those days that the bread used for the Eucharistic Celebration was prepared by the faithful themselves. Pope St.Gregory the Great was a direct witness of this Miracle. One Sunday, while he was celebrating Holy Mass in the ancient church dedicated to St. Peter, at the time for distributing Holy Communion, he noticed that among the faithful standing in line there was
    also present one of the women who had prepared the bread for the Consecration. She
    was laughing out loud. The Pope, visibly disturbed, asked her what was the reason for
    her behavior. The woman defended herself by saying she could not bring herself to believe how it was possible that the bread which she herself had prepared with her hands, thanks to the words of consecration, had become the Body and Blood of Christ. At that point, St. Gregory prohibited her from going to Communion and implored God to enlighten her. Just when he finished praying, he saw the very portion of bread prepared by that  woman change into flesh and blood. The woman, repentant, knelt down to the ground and began to weep. Even today, part of the Relic of the Miracle is preserved at Andechs in Germany, at the local Benedictine  Monastery.

    ITALY, 11th Century Eucharistic Miracle of Trani
    At Trani, in Puglia (Italy), there is preserved at the Church dedicated to St. Andrew the Relic of this
    Eucharistic Miracle, which took place around the year 1000 and is recounted in numerous documents. A woman from a non-Christian religion, not believing in the truth of the Catholic Dogma of the Real

    Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, assisted by a Christian friend, during the celebration of a Holy mass, succeeded in stealing a consecrated Host. The woman,as if to challenge God, then placed the
    consecrated Host in a greased frying-pan over a fire. Suddenly, a great quantity of blood started dripping from the Host and spilled out onto the floor, to the point of flowing out to the doorway by the
    entrance of the house. Brother Bartolomeo Campi describes in his work, “The Beloved of Jesus Christ,” (1625) an accurate account of how these events unfolded: “Pretending to be a Christian,
    the woman went to communion with the others...and having taken the Particle, she took it out of her mouth and placed in her handkerchief. Returning home, and wishing to test whether it was bread or
    not, she placed that blessed Particle into a pan full of oil in order to fry it...Upon contact with the boiling oil, the Particle miraculously became flesh dripping with blood, and the hemorrhaging of blood, as we might call it, did not cease at that point, but instead, so much blood spilled out of the pan that it flowed out and flooded the entire house. Terrified and full of dread, the woman began to scream...and the neighbors immediately ran to see what might be the cause of such great wailing...” The Archbishop was immediately informed of the occurrence and ordered the miraculous Host to be reverently brought back to the church.(1)

  • There is an unusual exhibition being held at St Joseph’s church in Thame, Oxfordshire, at the moment. Organised by Anna Johnstone, a local parishioner, it is a display of 60 panels of the Eucharistic miracles of the world (altogether there are 160), accompanied by daily Adoration. The exhibition was originally the inspiration of a young Italian boy, Carlo Acutis who died in 2006 aged 15 and whose cause for beatification has been opened by the diocese of Milan.
    Born in 1991, Carlo was a normal boy, lively, sporty and with a special talent for computers. Yet, not unlike Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati of Turin, he also developed a deep love for his faith, receiving Holy Communion daily following his First Communion, going to confession weekly and praying the Rosary. The project of designing an exhibition of Eucharistic miracles took him nearly three years. Thame is one of the first parishes in the UK to organise a display; it can be requested free of charge at www.carloacutis.com
    I am very curious to know how Anna became involved in the life of Carlo Acutis. She tells me that in July 2015, having experienced a difficult 18 months, including redundancy, she begged God for direction. She also prayed two novenas, one to St Joseph and the other to St Therese. On the ninth day of these novenas she found herself having a Skype interview with Carlo’s father in Assisi. She is now the governess to his two younger twin siblings. Learning more about his life, she has been “deeply moved” by his witness, saying “his sweetness, simplicity, purity and missionary heart reminds me of St Therese of Lisieux.”
    What brought the exhibition to Thame? Although now living in Assisi Anna explains that she has had a home in Thame for the last ten years. In 2016 she suggested to the parish priest, Fr David Hartley, that the parish undertake a pilgrimage to Assisi. A few months later, he and 17 parishioners did so. When the pilgrimage was over, praying before the Blessed Sacrament Anna felt moved to ask Fr Hartley if he would like to have the Eucharistic Miracles exhibition in Thame. Again he was enthusiastic.
    Anna describes to me the features of Carlo’s life that have led to him being proclaimed a Servant of God (the first step towards canonisation.) Although his parents were not particularly devout, he began to experience a deep attraction towards the Blessed Sacrament. Aged eleven he became a catechist and learnt about the famous Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano in 750 AD. Determined to make this and other similar Eucharistic miracles more widely known, Carlo was convinced that if people properly understood that Christ is present in the tabernacle, they would be transformed and churches would be full. He researched and collated all the authenticated Eucharistic miracles by himself and put them on-line, doing the programming for the website. It is available at www.miracolieucaristici.org
    Since Carlo’s death of fulminant leukaemia, the progress of his Cause has been very rapid. From all over the world people have been making pilgrimages to his home parish in Milan, after viewing his Exhibition either on-line or in their parish. Anna reflects that the Exhibition “has really deepened and strengthened my faith. There are so many extraordinary facts associated with these Eucharistic miracles, quite inexplicable to science.”
    She tells me that the Thame exhibition, accompanied by 60 hours of Adoration every week has been very well attended, with a constant flow of people coming in for prayer. “It is like the threshold, moving one into the actual presence of God.”
    What are her future hopes and plans for this Exhibition? Anna has contacted the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales and hopes that they will be interested in hosting it during the Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool in 2018. She adds, “I would also love it to be hosted in Westminster Cathedral, which is the metropolitan Cathedral of the Precious Blood.”
    Anna informs me that Walsingham parish has hosted the Exhibition this summer and are thinking of having a part of it on permanent display. She herself sees it “as a tool to encourage the Eucharistic life of parishes.” She concludes our conversation with the thought that “at this time of great uncertainty in the Church, it is a way of bringing something simple, fundamental, beautiful and redolent of the transcendence of God to his people.”

  •  During His visible stay on earth Christ performed countless miracles. He restored sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf and the use of their limbs to the paralyzed. The winds and sea obeyed Him. He told the dead Lazarus to come forth, and Lazarus came out of the grave. The crowning miracle of Christ's visible stay on earth was to raise Himself by His own divine power on Easter Sunday.
    But Christ continues performing miracles in our day. I know of no single statement I can share with you that is more practically important than to be convinced that Christ works and wants to perform miracles in our favor today. And that we can add, for the best of reasons, because Jesus Christ is still on earth. And He promised, "Behold, I am with you all days even to the end of the world."
