We, as Catholics, are privileged to be invited to receive Jesus, truly present in the Eucharist at Mass. However, it's estimated that 70% of Catholics consider the Eucharist to be merely symbolic.
To increase the awareness of the Real Presence of our Lord in the Eucharist and to promote Eucharistic adoration, Sacred Heart Parish in Calgary hosted the Eucharistic Miracles Exhibition for their parishioners, faithful in the Diocese of Calgary and beyond.
The exhibition was created by Blessed Carlo Acutis, a youth who died of leukemia at the age of 15 in 2006. The Eucharistic Miracles of the World Exhibition is a curated collection of Miracles recognized by the Church, that have occurred through history, from across the world. Blessed Carlo researched and catalogued Eucharistic Miracles from around the world, using his God given technical and artistic talents to create the materials that make up the exhibition.
Eucharistic miracles provide indisputable evidence that Jesus is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. As quoted from Blessed Carlo Acutis, “Jesus is my great friend, and the Eucharist is my highway to Heaven.” Blessed Carlo received the Eucharist daily and desired to share the joy of Christ’s presence with the world through the exhibition. He is the first millennial to be declared Blessed.
