People go to Mass yet do not receive Holy Communion. How can they deprive themselves of this miracle? - Daily Bible Reflections May 9,2014


MY FLESH AND MY BLOOD
 
“My flesh is really food and my blood is drink.” – John 6:55
 
       Eighth century AD in Lanciano, Italy. A Basilian monk doubted the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. As he celebrated the Holy Mass one day, the host changed into live flesh and the wine into live blood after consecration. The specimen, proven to be part of a human heart, had a blood type that matched the one found in the Holy Shroud in Turin.
       Thirteenth century in Santarem, Portugal. A woman attempted to bring a consecrated host to a sorcerer in exchange for a spell to make her unfaithful husband love her again. As she was on her way to bring the host, it started bleeding. Out of fear, she wrapped it with her scarf and hid it inside a wooden chest. In the evening, the couple was awakened by a brilliant ray of light shining through the chest, with a spectacular vision of angels adoring the bleeding Holy Host.
       In 2012, I was blessed to touch the relics of both Eucharistic miracles. The experience transformed my simple appreciation of Holy Communion into a deeper and more personal relationship with God. Each time He enters my body through the Eucharist, He also enters my heart.

Reflection: People go to Mass yet do not receive Holy Communion. How can they deprive themselves of this miracle?
 
I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof, Lord, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
 
St. Catherine of Bologna, pray for us.
