Eucharistic Miracles (12)


​ITALY, 750             
Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano In the  year 750.

 In  the  Abruzzi  village of Lanciano,  above the place  where  a Church  dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi  now stands, a Eucharistic miracle took  place whose precious  Relics are still preserved today,  and which are open for  visitation.  

The  various  chronicles  of the time tell  how in  the  year  750,  a priest was celebrating Holy  Mass.  Exactly at the  moment of the Consecration, the priest  was tormented by  strong doubts  as to whether the Body  and Blood  of Jesus were truly  present in the consecrated Host.  He  had just finished  the Consecration  when he noticed that the Host  had been transformed into  Flesh and the Wine  into  Blood. The  priest, filled with  regret  for having  doubted, began  to weep and seek  pardon from  God.   In  the chronicles,  the testimony  of numerous members of  the  faithful who witnessed the Miracle is  also recorded.

Two Eucharistic Miracles 1,300 years apart Confirm Real Presence of Jesus Christ: show same blood type and DNA.


Recently, after a scientific investigation, a eucharistic miracle in Poland was confirmed as authentic by the local bishop of the area. Initially, the Host had fallen on the ground, so it was placed in water, as is customarily done in such cases. Not long afterward, the Eucharist began turning red, as if bloody.
Tests subsequently done on the subject indicated it came from human tissue “most similar to the heart muscle … as it appears under the strains of agony.”
This wonderful miracle is similar to the one that occurred in Buenos Aires, Argentina years ago. In 1996, when then-Bishop Jorge Bergoglio (now Pope Francis) was an auxiliary bishop there under Cdl. Antonio Quarracino. A consecrated Host was found on the ground soon placed in a glass of water to dissolve. Days later, the Eucharist wasn’t dissolved at all — it had turned into bloody Flesh.
Cardinal Quarracino and Bp. Bergoglio took a photograph of the bloody Host for the record, then stored it in a tabernacle to decompose. In 1999, three years later, that same bloody Flesh remained. That’s when Dr. Ricardo Castañón, a Bolivian neurophysiologist, was called in to have samples from the Host examined in a laboratory environment.

Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano

A Eucharistic miracle is any miracle involving the Eucharist. Reported Eucharistic miracles can be differentiated from Transubstantiation which is also regarded to as a Eucharistic miracle.

Transubstantiation is the transformation of whole substance of the bread into the body and the transformation of the whole substance of the wine into the blood of Jesus Christ during a Catholic Mass or Orthodox Liturgy while reported Eucharistic miracles usually consist of unexplainable phenomenon such as consecrated Hosts visibly transforming into myocardium tissue, being preserved for extremely long stretches of time, surviving being thrown into fire, bleeding, or even sustaining people for decades.

In the city of Lanciano, Italy, around A.D. 700, a Basilian monk and priest was assigned to celebrate the Eucharistic sacrifice in the Latin Rite in the small Church of St.Legontian. Usually celebrating in the Greek Rite and using leavened bread and having been taught that unleavened bread was invalid matter for the Holy Sacrifice he was disturbed to be constrained to use unleavened bread and had trouble believing that the miracle of transubtantiation would take place with unleavened bread.
