Bleeding Communion Wafers, Eucharistic Miracles

Bleeding Communion Wafers, Eucharistic Miracles

At the end of the 19th Century, French Occultists were dealing in bleeding communion hosts.  But the church was defrocking priests who trafficked in such.

Now the church, at least some elements of it, are promoting such.  I don't know what to make of it.

It is of course an extreme form of Catholic Fundamentalism, which I do not go along with at all.

Still curious to me.

^^^^  Starts off with Buenos Aries, '92, '94, 96


Looking for outside reportage on this, this one involved present Pope Francis:

https://www.sign.org/articles/a-modern-day-eucharistic-miracle

"he saw to his amazement that the host had turned into a bloody substance. He informed Bishop Jorge Bergoglio (now Pope Francis), who gave instructions that the host be professionally photographed. The photos were taken on September 6, 1996. They clearly show that the host, which had become a fragment of bloodied flesh, had grown significantly in size. For three years the host remained in the tabernacle, the whole affair being kept a strict secret. Since the host had suffered no visible decomposition, in 1999 Archbishop Bergoglio (he had become Archbishop by that time) decided to have it scientifically analyzed."

"
One of these American scientists was Dr. Frederic Zugiba, a well known cardiologist, expert in forensic medicine, and chief medical examiner of Rockland County, New York from 1969 to 2002. He determined that the analyzed substance was real flesh and blood containing human DNA. Zugiba testified that “the analyzed material is a fragment of the heart muscle found in the wall of the left ventricle close to the valves. This muscle is responsible for the contraction of the heart. It should be borne in mind that the left cardiac ventricle pumps blood to all parts of the body."

"
The heart muscle is in an inflammatory condition and contains a large number of white blood cells. This indicates that the heart was alive at the time the sample was taken. It is my contention that the heart was alive, since white blood cells die outside a living organism. They require a living organism to sustain them. Thus, their presence indicates that the heart was alive when the sample was taken. What is more, these white blood cells had penetrated the tissue, which further indicates that the heart had been under severe stress, as if the owner had been beaten severely about the chest.”
"

So I look for secular news sources:

some curious books listed:

"Dr. Zugibe was one of the people investigating the Eucharistic miracle of Buenos Aires."

This stuff is so far out that it becomes more like occultism than mere fundamentalism.

Here another video in English, Priest telling the story.

Again, they used to be defrocking priests over stuff like this, now elements of the church are promoting it.
