Sidney named as stop on the 2023 Tour of Eucharistic Miracle Boards
September 28, 2023
The Grand Island Diocesan Council of Catholic Women (GIDCCW), in response to their 2023 Resolution to support the Eucharistic Revival in local diocese and parishes, has put together a tour across the diocese of the Eucharistic Miracle Boards from Spirit Catholic Radio.
St. Patrick Catholic Church in Sidney will host the Spirit Catholic Radio's Eucharistic Miracles of the World exhibit from September 29th-October 4th, 2023. This exhibit features 39 beautiful panels that highlight some of the most powerful Eucharistic miracles in the world. This display is free to the public to view daily from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM in the front gathering area of the Church. There will also be a DVD of Blessed Carlo Acutis, the 15-year-old, who fell in love with the Eucharist at age 7, and later put together these boards before his young death.
The first recorded miracle was in Lanciano, Italy in 700AD. There have been more than 150 miracles approved by the Vatican. Eucharistic miracles consist of unexplainable phenomena occurring after transubstantiation, such as a host visibly transforming into human tissue, a host surviving fire, a host bleeding or the Eucharist alone providing sustenance to a human being for a prolonged period of time. In order to be considered a Eucharistic miracle, the event is investigated by a special task force before deciding it is worthy of belief. Secular sources are often used to investigate and confirm the miracle. For more information, visit spiritcatholicradio.com/miracles.
While the Eucharistic Miracles of the World are here, St. Patrick's is honored to have as guest speaker Brother Julian Mary from the Knights of the Holy Eucharist. The Knights of the Holy Eucharist are consecrated lay Franciscan brothers dedicated to fostering reverent devotion to Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament. Br. Julian Mary will deliver a session about the Eucharist on Sunday, October 1, at 7:00 p.m. at St. Patrick's Church, 1039 14th Street in Sidney.
This event is free to the public.
