The Joy of Eucharistic Miracles

Do not doubt. In the words of St. Cyril of Jerusalem: "Since Christ Himself has said, 'This is My Body' who shall dare to doubt that It is His Body?"

Today we have the greatest source of mercy and joy among us, but how many of us go to adore Him in the Eucharist? How many of us actually believe and live out that belief every day of our lives not just Sunday? The truth is that few people adore Jesus in respect to the number of Catholics in the world. Jesus Christ lives on just as He lived in Bethlehem. But again, only the humble Shepard-like people go out to meet Him.

The Eucharist is truly the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord. There is nothing less wonderful about it; Jesus Christ is really present in the Sacred Host. I will continue to repeat this because it is so miraculous. Jesus Christ at the Last Supper instituted the Eucharist when He said to His Apostles: "This is My Body...This is My Blood..." In Consecration the bread and wine cease to be bread and wine and truly become Our Savior. The only thing remaining of bread and wine is the appearance (called the accidents).

Only in the Catholic Church is Jesus truly present in the Most Holy Eucharist. This is the great proof that the Catholic Church is the one true Church of Jesus Christ.

Throughout history, there have been rare instances when even the appearance of bread and wine left. These Eucharistic Miracles not only confirm the Real Presence but also that Jesus Christ remains with us. The Miracle of Lanciano, Italy (8th Century); Cascia, Italy (1300s); and Sienna, Italy (1730) are just two miraculous events.
