The Guardian Angel: Eucharistic Miracle for Paris France 1830
Are you Catholic, and if you or your friends are not, I invite you to come to the fullness of Truth in Jesus Christ who is present with us in the Eucharist. As Father Hardon was a mentor to Saint John Paul II and Saint Mother Theresa, here is some of his wisdom given to Him by the Holy Spirit. "
The simplest way to express what Christ asks us to believe about the Real Presence is that the Eucharist is really He. The Real Presence is the real Jesus. We are to believe that the Eucharist began in the womb of the Virgin Mary; that the flesh which the Son of God received from His Mother at the Incarnation is the same flesh into which He changed bread at the Last Supper; that the blood He received from His Mother is the same blood into which He changed wine at the Last Supper. Had she not given Him His flesh and blood there could not be a Eucharist.
We are to believe that the Eucharist is Jesus Christ - simply, without qualification. It is God become man in the fullness of His divine nature, in the fullness of His human nature, in the fullness of His body and soul, in the fullness of everything that makes Jesus Jesus. He is in the Eucharist with His human mind and will united with the Divinity, with His hands and feet, His face and features, with His eyes and lips and ears and nostrils, with His affections and emotions and, with emphasis, with His living, pulsating, physical Sacred Heart. That is what our Catholic Faith demands of us that we believe. If we believe this, we are Catholic. If we do not, we are not, no matter what people may think we are." Father John A. Hardon Invite those God has put into your path of Life, evangelize every breathing moment as your Savior came to set the world on Fire and wishes it was already ablaze with HIS Truth, let the Lord know you want to die to yourself so that you can Know, Love, and Serve Him to bring souls to HIM and be with HIM for eternity. Ask our Mama Mary to help you and love Jesus through you. To Jesus through Mary, GregoryMary
St. Catherine Laboure, Paris, France
Catherine Labouré was born on May 2, 1806 to a family of farmers. On April 21, 1830, she entered as a novitiate into the religious order, Daughters of Charity, in the motherhouse of Paris near Rue du Bac. Here in 1830, Catherine had the famous apparition of the Immaculate Mary, who told her, “Have a medal of this style coined; those who wear it around their neck will receive great graces.” During her entire stay at Rue du Bac, Catherine also had the grace of seeing Jesus in the consecrated Host, at both the moment of Holy Communion and during the Exposition of the Holy Sacrament.
Catherine herself described the moment of the apparition: “While making Eucharistic Adoration in deep silence, I seemed to hear a sound coming from the side of the tribune, like the rustle of a silk dress. I got up and looked and saw the Holy Virgin. She was of medium build and indescribably beautiful. A white veil fell from her head to her feet and rested upon a half-globe. Her hands, raised to waist level in a natural position, held another small golden globe with a gold Cross on top. Her eyes looked beseechingly towards Heaven.
While I was intent on contemplating her, the Holy Virgin lowered her eyes towards me and said these words: ‘This globe that you see represents the entire world, in particular France, and every single person.’ And the Virgin added, ‘The rays symbolize the graces shed on those who petition me’, making me understand how sweet it is to pray to the Holy Virgin and how generous she is to those who invoke her.
And then an oval frame formed around the figure of the Holy Virgin, with a semi-circular border of writing in gold above the right hand of Mary spelling out: ‘OH MARY, CONCEIVED WITHOUT SIN, PRAY FOR US WHO HAVE RECOURSE TO THEE’. “At this point in the vision, the globe that Mary had offered to God disappeared; her hands, full of graces, faced the globe that she rested her feet upon, stepping on a green serpent with yellow spots.
Suddenly the frame flipped and I saw the back of the medal showing the letter ‘M’ for Mary, and the Cross, and below the monogram there were two hearts; that of Jesus with the crown of thorns and that of Mary pierced by a sword. Around it, like a frame, there was a regal crown of twelve little stars. “Then I heard a voice saying to me, ‘Coin a medal in this style. All those who carry this will receive graces, especially if they wear the blessed medal around their neck and recite this short prayer. They will receive special protection from the Mother of God and will receive great graces. The graces will be abundant for those who wear it with great faith.’” Pope Benedict and Eucharistic Adoration
Vatican City, Nov 9, 2006 / 12:00 am MT (CNA).- Meeting with members of the plenary assembly of the Pontifical Committee for International Eucharistic Congresses this morning, Pope Benedict XVI said today that he hopes the practice of Eucharistic adoration “will become ever more widespread.” The Holy Father recalled, "just how beneficial the rediscovery of Eucharistic adoration by many Christians is.” “How much need modern humanity has to rediscover the source of its hope in the Sacrament of the Eucharist,” the Pope said. “I thank the Lord because many parishes, alongside the devout celebration of Mass, are educating the faithful in Eucharistic adoration. And it is my hope that - also in view of the next International Eucharistic Congress - this practice will become ever more widespread."
