Eucharistic Miracle in Poland

On April 19th of this year 2016, a Eucharistic Miracle has been confirmed in Legnica, Poland, by the local Bishop. On December 25th, 2013 at St. Jacek Parish, while distributing Holy Communion, a Sacred Host fell to the floor, and was picked up and placed in a container of water. After some time it began to give a red appearance. The then Bishop of Legnica, Stefan Cichy, appointed a Commission, whose task was to observe the phenomenon. In February 2014, he removed a fragment of the red matter and deposited it on the corporal. In order to analyse the fragment, the Commission ordered the taking of samples and conducted appropriate tests by different competent authorities. The final judgement of the Department of Forensic medicine states:"The histopathological tissue fragments were found containing a fragmented part of the skeletal muscle. ... The whole image ... is most similar to the heart muscle ... as it appears under the strains of agony. Genetic studies indicate the origin as human tissue."This miracle of the Eucharist, as a number of other documented miracles down the centuries serves to confirm the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Sacrament. On this Year of Corpus Christi let us approach the Holy Sacrament with great faith, respect and reverence.

Does Satan exist?

The answer is a definite yes. This week again we witnessed his works in the shooting dead of a young man on the streets of Dublin. “Satan or the devil and the other demons are fallen Angels, who have freely refused to serve God and His plan. Their choice against God is definitive. They try to associate man in their revolt against God”. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 414)

Scripture witnesses to the disastrous influence of the one Jesus calls “A murderer from the beginning”. Who would even try to divert Jesus from the mission received from His Father. (John 8:44 + Matthew 4:1-11). The power of Satan is, nonetheless, not infinite. He is only a creature, powerful from the fact that he is pure spirit, but still a creature. The Catechism acknowledges that it is a great mystery that providence should permit diabolical activity in the world. The evil being perpetrated by human beings in Dublin at the moment is a call to all of us to pray that the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ deliver us from it and protect our own community. The City of Dublin needs to be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and there is now an urgent need to make reparation to the Almighty for the committing of such evil deeds. We mustn’t leave it all to the Guards, society and the Church must act.
