Polish bishop supports reported Eucharistic miracle

Catholic World News - October 03, 2011

Catholics in Poland flocked to a special Mass on October 2 to celebrate a reported Eucharistic miracle.

In 2008, after a consecrated host was accidentally dropped to the floor, worshippers in the town of Sokolka noticed a brown spot on the host. An examination my medical researchers found that the colored substance was human heart tissue.

Archbishop Edward Ozorowski of Bialystok said on October 2 that the "substance of Christ’s body or blood has become available to the human senses, and this also happened in Sokolka." The Vatican has opened an investigation but has not made any formal comment on the reports.
