Thursday, October 28 through Tuesday, November 2, St. Mark’s will host the Vatican International Exhibition: Eucharistic Miracles of the World. This photographic exhibit features a wide array of Eucharistic miracles.
One of the best known is the miracle that took place in Lanciano Italy in 750 A.D. During Mass, and to the shock of the priest and all present, the bread and wine turned physically into visible flesh and blood. This miracle has been studied numerous times over the centuries. In 1973, the World Health Organization spent 15 months and administered over 500 tests and found the flesh to be human heart tissue. The blood samples were type AB (the same as that found on the Shroud of Turin) and both the blood and the flesh reacted as fresh tissue. The miraculous Flesh and Blood can still be viewed today at St. Francis Church in Lanciano, Italy.
Plan on spending an hour or two and be amazed how, over the centuries, Jesus has continued to make His presence known to man through these Eucharistic miracles.
The times for the exhibit will be:
- Thursday, October 28, 4;30-6:30 PM
- Friday, October 29, 4-7 PM
- Saturday, October 30, 6:00-7 PM
- Sunday, October 31, 10 AM-12 PM
- All Saints Day, Monday, November 1, 10:00-11:30 AM
- All Souls Day Tuesday, November 2, 10:45 AM-12 PM
Everyone is invited to come and read the stories of the Eucharistic miracles. Please let your family and friends know about this beautiful exhibit. Admission is free.
