Eucharistic miracles

Eucharistic miracles refer to those carefully documented miraculous occurrences connected with the Eucharist that took place throughout the ages of Christianity in various countries of the world. They are officially recognized by the Catholic Church as evidences of the real presence of Christ Jesus substantially present, body, blood, soul and divinity, under the forms of bread and wine.

Catholic doctrine does not require belief in Eucharistic miracles outside of the public revelation of the Bible and the accounts of the doctrine of the Eucharist to be found in explicit passages of the New Testament of the Bible.[1]

A recent traveling exhibit, with simultaneous publication of a book and a video presentation, offers the evidence and record of these occurrences in 152 countries around the world. Many persons over the Christian centuries have been persuaded by these and other documented miracles as cited by Catholic apologists to convert from paganism, Agnosticism and Atheism to faith in Christianity and Catholicism.

Eucharistic miracles have been denounced by Christian fundamentalists and many fervent Evangelicals as hoaxes and lying signs and wonders of the Devil designed to lead gullible souls astray.[2]
