  • Eucharist Miracles and Eucharistic Phenomena in the Lives of the Saints
  • Detailed accounts of miraculous Eucharistic phenomena
  • Powerful and awe-inspiring
  • Come to a new reverence and love for the Eucharist

On numerous occasions in the history of the Church, God has seen fit to offer miraculous visible proof of the Catholic teaching that at the sacred words of Consecration in the Mass, the bread and wine upon the altar are truly changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.

Joan Carroll Cruz's Eucharistic Miracles recounts 36 such major Eucharistic miracles in Church history. She tells of Hosts which have turned to visible flesh, Hosts which have bled, Hosts which have become hard as flint when received by a person in mortal sin, Hosts which have levitated, Hosts which have manifested their hidden presence by mysterious lights, consecrated "wine" which turned into visible blood, etc., as well as many miracles which occurred after sacrilege had been committed against the Holy Eucharist.

The events told here cover a wide historical gamut, the first miracle described being that of Lanciano, Italy in the 8th century and the last that of Stich, Bavaria in 1970. The author details the official investigations made into these remarkable events, and in many cases tells where the miraculous Hosts or Blood can still be seen and venerated today.

Also described here are many miraculous Eucharistic phenomena in the lives of the Saints: Mrs. Cruz tells of Saints who lived on the Eucharist alone, Saints who had raptures and ecstasies during Holy Communion, Saints who received Communion miraculously, and Saints who experienced levitations, visions, locutions, and phenomena of tears, fire and light in relation to their reception of the Eucharist. Plus, another section of the book gives the history of Eucharistic devotions, including Benediction, the Feast of Corpus Christi, and perpetual adoration.

To read the accounts of the amazing miracles related here -- events unexplained and unexplainable by science -- is to realize anew the literal truth of the Church's ancient doctrine of the Real Presnece. "Eucharistic Miracles" is destined to be for many people a powerful confirmation of the truth of the Catholic Faith by confirming the truth of one of the loftiest mysteries of the Catholic religion -- the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

    Eucharistic Miracles

    Awesome book. I could not stop reading it, and I have told everyone about the book and about the miracles. As I take communion, I look upon the Eucharist and think of the miracles and know that the Host is truly the body of our Lord Jesus Christ. I wish everyone would take the time to read this book.

    eucharistic miracles

    This book was an amazing collection of eucharistic miracles! I never realized that there were so many miracles concerning the eucharist. I could not put the book made me realize how very special the eucharist truly is and how sacred and fulfilling it is to have this gift from our Lord. Everyone should read this book for a better appreciation of his body and blood that is given to us each time we receive communion.

    God is awesome

    All Catholics should read this book. It should be shared with our youth and in studies for older groups. To have read this book changes how I view the Eucharist. I always felt humbled but now I feel so unworthy and grateful. Best Uses: Gift, Older Readers, Younger Readers; Describe Yourself: Bookworm

    So glad I bought this book.

    I love miracles!

    I use this book and read two miracles during each of my Adoration visits. It focuses me on the body and blood of Christ in the Eucharist! Beautiful and reverent descriptions. It is a perfect gift for yourself or others who go to Adoration regularly, but living in modern times, we all can benefit from remembering the miracle of our Eucharistic beliefs as we approach Communion!
