Every day, on all the altars of the world, the greatest miracle that occurs is possible: the transformation of bread and wine into the true Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.
When we receive Communion we can touch it only by faith, because to our senses only the form of bread and wine is physically unaffected by the consecration.
The Indian miracle? – One of the great miracles of our times.
The Holy Face of Jesus Christ has appeared on a Eucharistic host at Christ the King Church, Vilakkannur, a parish in Kerala, India. The parish, also part of the Syro-Malabar Archdiocese of Tellicherry, recently sent the host to Rome for scientific evaluation.
Jesus’ face allegedly first appeared on the host on Nov. 15, 2013 while then-parish pastor Rev. Fr. Thomas Pathickal celebrated morning Mass.
Thousands came to the parish to venerate and view the host.
According to an Indian news source, “The district administration had to intervene as the crowds blocked the road to Paithalmala, a major tourist place in northern Kerala.”
