The Guardian Angel: Eucharistic Miracle 1374 Middleburg, Belgium
Are not all true Catholics on their way to heaven with Jesus and Mary for eternity. While here do we have a responsibility as a child of the Holy Trinity to daily be a watchman for ourselves and for those God has blessed us with to put into our path? God has given us a way, and sometimes we listen, but do we UNDERSTAND? We are called to warn our brothers and sisters, to be used as a vessel for Our Lord, not man, who is bringing forth novelties all the time, through the influence of Satan. At the end of this Eucharistic Miracle, listen to the wisdom and warnings of Saints for properly receiving the Blessed Sacrament. Know this, Satan wants you to think you can just do whatever you want, based upon what his dupes have allowed to desecrate the Creator. Many are not doing this because they know better, but remember the words of Jesus on the Cross, "Father forgive them, they know not what they do." Yes many have not been catechized properly, both clergy and laity. So let us honor God by doing what is right, and warning clergy and those put into our path, about what is Sacred. God be with each of you. To Jesus through Mary, GregoryMary
This Eucharistic miracle goes back to 1374. In St. Peter's Church in Middleburg, during Holy Communion the consecrated Host changed into bleeding Flesh.
A portion of the Host to this day is kept in Louvain by the Augustinian Fathers. The monk, Jean de Gheest, confessor of the Archbishop who approved the cult, asked for the Precious Relic as a gift. The other portion is in St. Peter's Church in Middleburg.
There exists much documentation on the Eucharistic miracle. In a monograph written in 1905 by historian Joseph Wils, professor of the Catholic University of Louvain, entitled Le Sacrement du Miracle de Louvain, are cited almost all the contemporary documents and testimonies.
In Middleburg lived a noble woman known by everybody for her great faith and devotion. The woman was also very attentive to the spiritual formation of her family and household staff. During the Lent of 1374, as she did every year in her house, she began to do penance in preparation for the coming of Easter.
A few days before, a new manservant by the name of Jan was hired, who had not gone to confession for many years, in spite of the dissolute life he was living. The woman invited all the household staff to go to Mass. Jan did not dare oppose this invitation so as not to disappoint her.
He attended the whole Eucharistic celebration, and when it was time to receive Holy Communion, the man approached the altar with much superficiality. As soon as he received the Host on his tongue, the Sacrament changed into bleeding Flesh. At once Jan took the Particle from his mouth; Blood dripped from the Sacred Flesh onto the cloth covering the altar rail.
The priest realized at once what was happening, and with great emotion, carefully placed the miraculous Particle in a vessel inside the tabernacle. Jan repented and confessed his sin before everyone. From that day on, he led an exemplary life and nourished a great devotion to the Most Blessed Sacrament to the end of his life.
All the church and civil authorities of the city were informed of the miraculous event and after diligent investigation the Archbishop authorized the cult of this miraculous event.
Listen to the Saints
With the practice of the Communion in the hand is true the desecration of the Blessed Sacrament. The norm of the Catholic Church remains to have Communion in the mouth. The only pleasing way to God is to receive Communion on the knees and in the mouth, or standing, but always in the mouth and from the hands of a Priest only. St. Francis of Assisi: "Only they, (the priests), should administer it, and no others." (Letter 2a, to all the faithful, 3.5) St Brigid of Sweden, 1373: "Look, daughter of Mine, I left My priests five gifts... and the fifth one is the privilege of touching My Most Holy Flesh with their hands." _ _ _ The Martyr and Holy Cardinal John Fisher 1535: "The times of flourishing or collapse within the history of the Church, were always associated with the handling of the Holy Eucharist." John Paul II: "I cannot be in favor of the Communion in the hand and I cannot recommend it. The priest has a primordial responsibility as a 'servant of the Holy Eucharist and of all the Holy Forms', primordial because it is complete. Touching the Holy Creations is a privilege of the ordained ones" (Dominicae Cenae II) "Communion in the hand was introduced by the modernist hierarchy without the authorization of the Holy See (Cardinal Suenens in Holland etc). Paul VI tenaciously opposed it but decided to grant a pardon only where the use was already rooted to avoid a widespread disobedience.”
