Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ


“For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.” – John 6:55

In the 8th century, in the town of Lanciano in Italy, a Basilian priest’s faith was wavering. He feared he was losing his vocation.
His doubts were particularly strong one morning as he began Mass. As he consecrated the bread and wine, an astounding miracle happened. The host turned into real flesh and the wine into real blood!
The miracle did not stop there. After more than 1,300 years, you would expect the relics to have disintegrated. Instead, it can still be found in the reliquary. Recent scientific tests showed that the flesh is human flesh consisting of the muscular tissue of the heart. The blood in the chalice has coagulated but when the scientists liquefied it, they found the proteins and minerals of freshly shed blood.
This first and greatest Eucharistic miracle has changed doubting Thomases to become believers in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. But we need to realize that we don’t need to travel all the way to Italy to witness this miracle. It happens every day, in every Catholic church around the world, during the consecration at Mass. Go and witness it yourself. Cecil Lim (cez_lim@yahoo.com)

“What wonderful majesty! What stupendous condescension! O sublime humility! That the Lord of the whole universe should humble Himself like this under the form of a little bread, for our salvation.” (St. Francis of Assisi)

Lord, transform me with Your Body and Blood.
