Eucharistic Miracles: And Eucharistic Phenomenon in the Lives of the Saints by Joan Carroll Cruz
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” (John 6:51-52)
There is no greater gift that God has given his Church than this: that the Eucharist is a visible sign of the self-sacrificing love, which continues to save the world from sin.
On many occasions throughout the history of the Catholic Church, God has provided us with visible proof of the reality of the Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
In her book, Eucharistic Miracles, Joan Carroll Cruz documents 36 miracles that occurred from 800 A.D. to the present day. This book tells of consecrated Hosts that have turned to human flesh, bled, levitated, and have become hard as flint when received by a person in mortal sin. It details the official investigations that have been made into these miracles by scientists throughout the world, as well as the locations of the miracles that can still be venerated today. Eucharistic Miracles also recounts miraculous Eucharistic phenomena in the lives of saints: saints who lived with only the Eucharist for sustenance, experienced raptures, ecstasies, levitations, visions, locutions, and much more…
Photographs of the miracles, the churches they took place in, the art they inspired, and the people involved are included—these add the final touch to a comprehensive, detailed, and extraordinary overview of these Eucharistic miracles.
Eucharistic Miracles is a superb compilation of God's visible testimony of the truth of the Catholic Faith, proving the reality of one of its loftiest mysteries: the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
