  • 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.

    Great book, condition not so good

    This book is so well researched and inspiring. Unfortunately, in the process of shipping, quite a few pages became dented and one or two became creased.

    The book is very interesting and informative. I had never heard of Eucharistic Miracles until I saw this book. I was so excited when I received it and it included pictures of the miracles and relics. I even brought the book to my religious education class that I teach and showed the students some of the miracles. Once I finish the book I am going to share it with others. I can't wait to read other books about Relics and Miracles!

    Miracles have & continue to happen surrounding the Eucharist. Interestingly, fellow Eucharistic Ministers and myself were just discussing the miracles yesterday after mass.

    Love the book. It has brought me closer to Jesus. Just knowing how deep the faith of that generation was along with the persecution of the Christian Faith. Our Lord always seemed to time his miracles when needed most.

    Eucharistic Miracles

    I am so glad I ordered this book. I went to catholic school from 1st through 12th grade and had never heard of these miracles. I had learned that the Host becomes Jesus Christ but I didn't understand how that could be. I have always received the host reverently, but, after reading of these miracles, it has increased my faith and reverence towards the Mass and Holy Communion 100-fold. Why is this information not given out more freely?
