The Story Behind The Bleeding Host Confirmed To Be The True Body And Blood Of Christ

The Story Behind The Bleeding Host Confirmed To Be The True Body And Blood Of Christ

Many of you must have seen this viral image of the Bleeding Host Confirmed To Be The True Body And Blood Of Christ. If you haven’t seen that picture, you can watch it here.

While some of you may be wondering where this is and the story behind it, many others are also spreading false news to its origin and purpose of being there.

A bleeding Host in Poland that “has the hallmarks of a Eucharistic miracle” has been approved for veneration.

The announcement was made by Bishop Zbigniew Kiernikowski of Legnica on Sunday, according to reports.

On Christmas Day in 2013, a consecrated Host fell to the floor, the bishop said in a statement. It was put in a container of water and red stains subsequently appeared on the Host.

After the discovery, the former Bishop of Legnica set up a commission to observe the phenomenon, the statement said.

“In February 2014, a tiny red fragment of the Host was seperated and put on a corporal. The Commission ordered to take samples in order to conduct the thorough tests by the relevant research institutes,” the statement added.

Tests were performed at the Department of Forensic Medicine in Wroclaw at the beginning of 2014. Another study was subsequently performed by the Department of Forensic Medicine of the Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin, which concluded that “in the histopathological image, the fragments (of the Host) were found containing the fragmented parts of the cross striated muscle. It is most similar to the heart muscle. Tests also determined the tissue to be of human origin, and found that it bore signs of distress.”

Bishop Kiernikowski said the Host bore signs of “a Eucharistic miracle” and explained that in January of this year he took the matter to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

In April, according to a recommendation made by the Holy See, he asked parish priest Andrzej Ziombrze “to prepare a suitable place” for the Host so that the faithful could venerate it.

“I hope that this will serve to deepen the cult of the Eucharist and will have deep impact on the lives of people facing the Host,” the bishop added.

One account has it that it happened during the Holy Hour when people were praying in front of Our LORD Jesus Christ while another version of the story has it that it happened during during Mass.

The second account said the Priest placed a consecrated host in a chalice with the Precious Blood, drank the Precious Blood, and when he finished noticed something strange: the host had stuck to the side of the chalice, and on it appeared the face of Jesus. Other various stories being passed around are saying the host was or is bleeding, or that it had turned to flesh.

These images have widely circulated and from the images above, this must have happened during the Holy Hour.

There is no official Church claim in this as a Eucharistic miracle yet, there must be proper investigation before the Church can authoritatively proclaim this as a Eucharistic miracle.
