Mexico archdiocese investigating possible Eucharistic miracle [CNA]

Mexico City, Mexico, Aug 2, 2013 / 12:33 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Msgr. Ramiro Valdes Sanchez, vicar general of Guadalajara, Mexico, has announced that the archdiocese is investigating a possible Eucharistic miracle that reportedly took place last week.

Msgr. Valdes Sanchez said he has received instructions from the archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Jose Francisco Robles Ortega, to direct the investigation.

The pastor of Mary Mother of the Church, Father Jose Dolores Castellanos Gudino, said that on July 24, while he was kneeling in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, he saw a flash of light and heard a voice.

“Ring the bells so that everyone comes,” the voice allegedly instructed. “I will pour blessings upon those present and the entire day. Take your small tabernacle for private adoration to the parish altar and put the large monstrance next to the small tabernacle. Don’t open the tabernacle until three in the afternoon, not before.” 

“I will perform a miracle in the Eucharist,” the voice continued, “the miracle that will take place will be called, ‘Miracle of the Eucharist in the incarnation of love together with our Mother and Lady.’ Copy the image that I will give you now and show it to others.” 

The voice then reportedly told him to share this with all of his priests to aid in their conversion and that he would fill all souls with blessings.

Fr. Gudino said that after hearing the voice he could only say, “My Lord, I am your servant, let your will be done.”

With local people gathered at 3 p.m., he recounted that he “approached the tabernacle and upon opening it the host consecrated by Our Lord Jesus Christ was covered in blood.”

According to the priest, the voice also told him to establish an adoration chapel and to allow any scientific study necessary to confirm the miracle.

Msgr. Sanchez said samples from the host will be studied in Guadalajara. 

“First of all the testimony needs to be gathered from three people who were present, obviously in this case from the pastor,” he explained.

He also said that a team of experts will be assembled to investigate whether there is a scientific explanation for the phenomenon.

“While this is occurring, the Church in Guadalajara, through the Cardinal Archbishop, has said that the Host should not be exposed to the public and that it be kept in a safe place, in a tabernacle,” he added.

“The Catholic Church’s legal doctrine states that when an extraordinary, uncommon event occurs, the necessary precautions should be taken to determine if the event can be explained by natural causes or if a more serious investigation is necessary to determine if it goes beyond the natural and whether or not it should be considered a miraculous event,” he explained.

Of course it must be investigated but the really important events will be the evidence of Grace being poured out in that Parish, whether it will become a center for the outpouring of Grace.

There was another similar event in the Southern Americas a few years ago.

Mexico can certainly use a beautiful Miracle like this and so all of the Americas. And so we Pray And trust the Church! Bless, Memaw

Yes I posted this two days ago and I am aware that the Eucharist has been reposed while the investigation is ongoing. I saw videos of it, it appears blood IS leaching out from the bottom of the Monstrance. I am quite eager to know the results of the tests although I expect it will take a great while before we know them.

I mean this in the most respectful manner, but I’ve always been curious what blood type Jesus was. Or if there are live cells in the Eucharistic miracles, whether anyone attempted DNA sequencing. (I’m a biologist by training.)

But that sounds kind of sacrilegious…but I can’t help that it pops up in my thoughts. :blush:

Regardless, I hope if it is real, God will pour His grace and blessings upon the faithful.

Yes actually! At least one Eucharistic miracle has had the Blood tested. It is type AB. Interestingly. But not surprisingly, it matches the blood of the man on the Shroud of Tourin.
