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.

POLAND, 1290               

Eucharistic Miracle of Glotowo.
The oldest documents which describe this miracle tell how:

“Some cattles were dragging a plough, behind which a peasant was walking at a regular pace. The sun was slowly descending beyond the horizon, creating long shadows.   

The man raised his eyes and then incited his animals, after a long day’s work, to go up with great pains to the top of the hill. After so much work – thought the peasant – we will have bread. Suddenly, the plough became stuck, the cattle gave a stronger jolt, and to the side a big clod of soil was formed. The animals stopped as if petrified.

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.
