From June 1 to Aug 31
The Vatican-approved exhibit on Eucharistic Miracles formally opens to the public. There is no charge of admission, but free-will donations are accepted to pay for the upkeep of the Marian Center grounds.
The Vatican International Exhibition is comprised of a set of 146 posters about Miracles related to the Eucharist that happened around the world.
The verified accounts date from as early as the 3rd century, the latest in 2001. It’s purpose is to increase the awareness of the Real Presence of our Lord in the Eucharist: the consecrated bread becomes His Body and the consecrated wine becomes His Blood!
The most famous miracle is the one of Lanciano (Italy, 750 A.D.): while a doubting priest was celebrating Mass, the Host turned into a piece of Flesh and the wine turned into Blood and coagulated.
This exhibit has visited over 3000 places and consists of museum quality panels filled with pictures and descriptions of over one hundred Eucharistic Miracles.
After the overwhelming success of last year’s exhibit on the life of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, we are so excited to be hosting this exhibit on the Eucharist, the source and summit of Christian Life!
The Eucharistic exhibit will arrive May 1 so that several Catholic schools can view the exhibit while having a field trip to the Marian Center.
Then we’ll formally open the exhibit to the public on Saturday, June 1. The exhibit will be here all summer long until Aug. 31.
There is no cost to attend the exhibit, but a free-will donation is welcome to help the Marian Center pay for its heating and electricity.
