We are very excited to host the Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit Mon, Feb 13 - Fri, Feb 17. The posters will be displayed throughout the day for the children to experience. The Library will be open for parents to view Tue, Feb 14 - Fri, Feb 17 from 7:30-8:05am. If you are unable to make those times, the posters will be displayed over the weekend in McCready Hall.
Eucharistic miracles are extraordinary events or phenomena, which manifest the Real Presence of Jesus in the consecrated bread and wine in a way that we can discern with our ordinary senses. The manifestation may be as simple as a host floating on air or as astonishing as a host becoming visible human flesh.
Blessed Carlo Acutis – “To always be close to Jesus; that’s my life plan.”
With these few words, Carlo Acutis, the boy who died of leukemia, outlines the distinguishing feature of his brief existence: to live with Jesus, of Jesus, and in Jesus.
This international exhibition was created and designed by Blessed Carlo Acutis in 2002. It consists of an extensive collection of photographs and historical records representing a sampling of ancient and modern Eucharistic miracles that have taken place in various parts of the world. The collection was assembled by the Vatican to mark the Year of the Eucharist (2004-2005). After being shown at more than 500 parishes in Italy, it is now traveling the rest of the world and will be available to our school and parish community.
On display at OLMC Mon, Feb 13 – Sun, Feb 19
The exhibition brought to Phoenix is comprised of 47 different miracles spanning 1500 years, with the most recent one having occurred in 2013! The miracles featured are from Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The exhibition offers you a visual tour of these veritable treasures of our faith.
The exhibit will be on display for our students in the school library from Mon, Feb 13 - Fri, Feb 17. It will then be transferred to McCready Hall for viewing by the parish community on Fri, Feb 17 - Sun, Feb 19.
