This is a brief reminder that the Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit begins tomorrow. Stop by any time from 8:00 A.M.-8:00 P.M from Thursday-Sunday and explore the displays in the church basement describing all of the ways that the Lord has miraculously made himself visible in the Eucharist in a special way. Many of the stories are fascinating.
For example, one story describes how someone tried to desecrate the Eucharist by stabbing the host and then putting it into a pot of boiling water. The Eucharist miraculously emerged from the water and hovered there in midair. Another person tried to bring the host home and placed it in their nightstand when suddenly it had a strong glow. The person’s husband, who didn’t know the Eucharist was there, was amazed and asked what was happening, when suddenly the wife explained it was the Eucharist. A third story recounts how someone was doubting the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist while walking along with their starving mule. He boastfully proclaimed that when the mule fell down in adoration before the publicly displayed Eucharist before eating, then he would believe. That is exactly what happened, as the mule took the posture of complete adoration. Some miracles happened many years ago, while some happened in the last ten or twenty years and have been scientifically tested.
Come visit the exhibit this weekend. It is a self-guided exhibit, which will allow you to go at your own pace and not be disturbed, though there will be volunteers available as well. A link to my earlier post on the exhibit is here.
See you this weekend.
