Eucharistic Miracles: Tangible Signs of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist

One of the major things that separates the Catholic church from most other Christian denominations is the belief that the wine and bread, once consecrated by the priest, actually become the body and blood of Jesus Christ.

Not a symbol, not a representation, but the actual body and blood of Jesus Christ, which retained its outward form but inwardly was changed. In fact, one of the early charges against Christians by the pagan Romans was that they were cannibals, because these early Christians did, in fact, believe that they were eating Christ’s flesh and drinking His blood.

You can certainly find reference to the Real Presence in John 6:43-67, where we see that many of the followers of Jesus could not accept this saying and left him. Jesus did not say “hey guys, I did not mean it literally”. Instead, He let them walk away.
Eucharistic Miracles by Joan Carroll Cruz


Paragraph 1374 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church outlines this belief in the real presence should you wish to read further, and the book shown here by Joan Carroll Cruz chronicles the many instances of Eucharistic miracles.

Over the years many miraculous instances have occurred that attest to this belief, such as the one shown above in Santarem, Portugal. These miracles cannot be explained by human logic or science and seem to occur most often in times or situations where people have begun to doubt the True Presence.

A young Blessed,  Carlo Acutis, developed a website listing many Eucharistic Miracles around the world.

Here is an interesting video highlighting some of these miracles, based on the research by Carolo Acutis.

  1. Our Pastor at Holy Trinity Roman Catholic parish in Hackensack, NJ, would like to host the Exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracle Around the World. What website or email address should I use to get in touch with the proper person/organization who is sponsoring this exhibit?
