Holy Family Parish, Hebron to Host Eucharistic Miracles Exhibition

Eucharistic Miracles of the World Exhibit to come to the Diocese of Norwich

Over the centuries, there have been countless instances all, over the world, where God has chosen to have The Eucharist transform perceptibl into flesh and blood. That is, the Eucharistic bread manifesting itself physically into human flesh, and the wine into human blood. In fact, there have been over 160 such Eucharistic miracles approved by the Church.

The Church of the Holy Family, in Hebron is hosting the Vatican International Exhibit of Eucharistic Miracles of the World. The exhibit was produced by the Vatican and consists of 140 posters, panels and a Power Point presentation documenting instances around the world where the Eucharist has perceivably changed in real human flesh and real human blood. Many of these have been scientifically analyzed, all with the same result - the flesh is always from heart muscle, and the blood type is always AB (the same as the Shroud of Turin)

The Catechism of the Catholic Church: paragraph 1374 states, “The mode of Christ's presence under the Eucharistic species is unique. It raises the Eucharist above all the sacraments as "the perfection of the spiritual life and the end to which all sacraments tend. In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist "the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained. This presence is called ‘real’"

Deacon Benedict LoCasto will give a one-hour Parish Mission entitled “The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist”, at 7pm on the first night of the Exhibit.

Wednesday, March 18th: 6pm – 9pm (Parish Mission: 7-8pm)
