We have started our simple exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracles which happened and were proved through the history of the Holy Church. (WE ARE ALL VERY WELCOME to visit The Chapel of the Sacred Heart in St Swithun’s church and to meditate what happened there.
This week: Eucharistic Miracle of MEERSSEN (Nederland) 1222 ad 1465
The Story in more detail
In 1222 and 1465, two important Eucharistic miracles took place in the town of MEERSSEN . The first occurred during Holy Mass, when living Blood dripped from the large Host and stained the corporal. The second occurred in 1465, when a farmer was able to rescue the relic of the miracle from a fire that had destroyed the whole church. The church was later rebuilt, and in 1938 Pope Pius XI raised it to a minor basilica. Numerous pilgrims come every year to Meerssen to venerate the relic of the miracle.
