(Pics) Eucharistic Miracle — Inside the Vatican

“If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh…”  Jesus Christ

EDITOR NOTE: I was not familiar with Julia Kim or the various reported miracles and messages occurring in Naju, Korea, until I received these pics by e-mail. Of course, our faith does not depend on miracles and Catholics are not required to believe in them, even when approved by the Church–and there have been many such Eucharistic miracles. Thus far, Naju is not approved, and there appears to be considerable controversy involved. On a personal note, I already believe. The Holy Spirit confirmed the true presence of Christ—body, blood, soul, and divinity—at the first Mass I attended back in 1996. It was at that very moment sitting in mass that I realized the need to convert and become a Catholic. Why? Because, God doesn’t lie, whoever eats this bread will live forever and The Most Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life—God from God, Light from Light…

I’ve linked to the website for your own discernment.

During an overnight prayer meeting in Naju on November 24, 2009 commemorating the fifteenth anniversary of Archbishop Giovanni Bulaitis¡¯visit to Naju and his witnessing two miraculous descents of the Eucharist on the same day, the Blessed Mother instructed Julia to visit Archbishop Giovanni Bulaitis. On February 26, 2010, Julia Kim together with Fr. Aloysius Chang and a few volunteer helpers made a trip to Rome. She was also carrying with her the Eucharist that had bled on October 16, 2006 as well as the messages from Jesus and the Blessed Mother on October 15 and 16, 2006 for the Holy Father.

When Julia and her companions visited Archbishop Bulaitis on February 27, 2010, His Excellency asked Julia what her plan was for the trip. Julia answered that she would only obey the Archbishop regarding what she was to do in Rome. The Archbishop said that he had heard from the Blessed Mother while he was praying two days earlier that Julia will tell something for him. The Archbishop also told Julia that the Blessed Mother had said, ¡°Last time (on November 24, 1994), you received the Eucharist from Julia; this time, you give her the Eucharist. The Archbishop continued, “Let’s have the Sunday Mass tomorrow in the chapel here in my official residence.”

From 10 a.m. on February 28, Archbishop Bulaitis and Fr. Aloysius Chang concelebrated the Mass. During the Communion, the Archbishop gave Julia the Sacred Host. While Julia was meditating, she called one of the helpers and opened her mouth. The helper was surprised and asked the Archbishop to come closer. The Archbishop saw that the Eucharist was changing into visible flesh and blood on her tongue. He was startled and asked the four Sisters who were also at the Mass to come and see.

Fresh blood was covering the Eucharist, and, at the same time, the Eucharist was becoming larger. A while later, some blood was seen in the little space between the Eucharist and Julia’s tongue. The Archbishop observed every change in the Eucharist without turning his eyes away from the Eucharist even once, as, through this miracle, the inner reality of the Eucharist, which is the Real Presence of the living and breathing Jesus with His Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity normally hidden behind the species of bread and wine, was being revealed. The Archbishop instructed Julia to swallow the Eucharist. Julia was wishing that the Eucharist would be preserved, but promptly obeyed the Archbishop¡¯s instruction.

The Archbishop then poured some water into the ciborium and asked Julia to drink it. After she drank the water, the Archbishop examined the inside of her mouth to see if there were any wounds. Then, the Archbishop wiped the inside of Julia’s mouth with a purificator (linen), but did not see any blood on the purificator. All these steps taken by the Archbishop must have been the most proper and thoughtful procedures as a shepherd in the Church for a clear and authentic discernment of whether the sign he observed was of a supernatural origin or not.

A Message of Love from the Blessed Mother

received by Julia Kim in Rome on February 28, 2010

In obedience to the Blessed Mother’s instruction on November 24, 2009: “Visit Archbishop Giovanni Bulaitis”, I arrived in Rome in the night of February 26, 2010 together with Fr. Aloysius Chang and four other companions. In the morning of the next day, February 27, Saturday, we and Mrs. Cäcilia Pohl from Germany visited His Excellency Archbishop Giovanni Bulaitis at his official residence. His Excellency told us that he had received a response from the Blessed Mother while he was praying two days earlier: “You will hear some words from Julia. On November 24, 1994, you received the Eucharist through Julia, but this time you should give the Eucharist to her.” His Excellency invited us to the Sunday Mass the next day, February 28.

The Mass, concelebrated by Archbishop Giovanni Bulaitis and Fr. Aloysius Chang, began at 10 a.m. on February 28 in the chapel at His Excellency’s official residence. While I was meditating after receiving Communion, I felt that the Eucharist in my mouth was becoming larger and asked Peter Kim sitting next to me to take a look. Peter was surprised and reported what he saw to His Excellency. His Excellency, Fr. Chang, four Sisters, and the visitors from Korea and Germany all saw the miracle of love in which the Eucharist changed into flesh and blood.

After observing the changed species of the Eucharist, His Excellency instructed me to swallow the Eucharist. I had some hope that the Eucharist could be preserved, but swallowed the Eucharist in obedience to His Excellency’s instruction. At that moment, Jesus and the Blessed Mother appeared and blessed all the persons in the chapel. Then, the Blessed Mother began speaking.

The Blessed Mother:

“Giovanni, my extremely beloved son whom I can put in my eyes without any pain! Together with my Son Jesus, I love you so much. You were called (to Naju in 1994) as the representative of the Pope and I have always been with you in your every move. Sometimes I protected you from the crisis of death and have looked after you.

My beloved son who has been specially called!

The Lord, who has the keys to death, hell, and Heaven, is also Alpha and Omega, that is, the beginning and the end, isn’t He? The Lord died, but is alive and breathing in the Eucharist like this (=as you saw the moving Eucharist in Julia’s mouth) and will be present in all eternity. The Lord began the miracles of the Eucharist coming down from above through you in Naju, but today is the day when, through you, the Eucharistic miracle occurred for the last time. Do not worry, but meditate well on “Omega” and put it into practice.

The division in the Church continues becoming more serious and numerous souls have fallen into a swamp and are floundering, but even the shepherds, who are supposed to make the Lord known, are spiritually blind and deaf and are singing the times of peace even while witnessing the disasters that are occurring at different places in the world and are criticizing others’ faults while remaining blind to their own faults. That is why this Mommy’s Heart has become so anxious and worried that I have arranged your meeting like this. Therefore, make haste to help Naju be approved as soon as possible so that the numerous souls may repent and be saved.

My Son Jesus, Who possesses the Divine Nature, should receive all the power, honor, glory, and worship, but the children who accept that He comes in the appearance of bread, hiding all His power, solemn dignity, divinity, and humanity, to save all the poor children in the world who have lost their ways and are wandering are very few. That is why my Son Jesus wears the crown of thorns instead of the royal crown even today and allowed your meeting, with His Love, in order to save even those souls who have human faces but brutal minds.

Giovanni, my extremely beloved son! As there is no time to hesitate or procrastinate, make haste, with a most sublime mind, to pass on to the Pope and Cardinal Ivan Dias Jesus’ Substance present in the Eucharist and the messages so that (the messages) may be put into practice.

All of you, whom I have chosen and who know well that God can make you prosperous and successful but can also exterminate you and wipe you out, must become united with much greater love and perpetuate the Paschal Mysteries of the Last Supper and the Resurrection, as your situation is the same as that of the Apostles, who had been personally chosen by the Lord for the salvation of the world, gathered in the Cenacle before they completed their mission through their martyrdom.

Through my invisible presence, I will build anew the places destroyed by Satan, with your help, so that the triumph may be achieved in the fierce battle in these end times. Thus, you will surely see the triumph of my Immaculate Heart, and, when my Son Jesus returns to this world, you who have followed me and made me known will also stand with Christ in His glory.”

Icon of Our Lady Weeping in France – Is it any wonder?

I tend to believe this one…

 

Considering the following numbers and recent troubles in France, is it any wonder Our Lady is weeping?

The IFOP Institute has just made a survey on Catholicism in France for the daily La Croix. The result is mind-blowing:

  • Whilst, in 1965, 81% of the French declared themselves as Catholics, they were no more than 64% in 2009.
  • More serious: whilst 27% of the French went to Mass once a week or more in 1965, they are no more than 4.5% in 2009.
  • At a doctrinal level, generally, it’s a catastrophe: 63% of practicing Catholics think all religions are the same; 75% ask for an “aggiornamento” of the Church on contraception and even 68% for abortion.
  • As for communion with the Roman Pontiff, the situation is no better: only 27% of practicing Catholics consider that Benedict XVI “rather well” defends “the values of Catholicism” (personally, I don’t even understand the question, but that doesn’t matter) when 34% think he defends them “rather badly”.

The story follows:

HUNDREDS of people are flocking to see a painting of the Virgin Mary which its owner claims is crying tears of oil.

Esat Altindagoglu has been inundated with more than 50 visitors a day hoping to see the “miracle” at his house near Paris, France.

The foot-high statue was given to his wife Sevin by a Lebanese priest on her birthday in 2006, the Turkish-born salesman said.

It began weeping oil on February 12 this year, and had been crying every day since, he claims.

He said: “As word spread, people started arriving from France, then from all over Europe.

“I’ve been having between 50 and 60 people a day turning up for more than three weeks now.”

An Orthodox priest had now agreed to say mass at his home in Garges-les-Gonesse this week to thank the Virgin Mary, Mr Altindagoglu said.

He added: “Apparently the next step is to have the weeping witnessed by a bishop so the miracle can be officially recognised by the church.”

Over the centuries there have been hundreds of incidents of statues said to have weeped blood, oil or water.

But the only one ever approved as a miracle by the Pope was Our Lady of Akita in Japan in 1973, with all the others ruled out as hoaxes.

Pope Benedict XVI: Follow Christ’s Path to Peace–Angelus 01.28.08

Asia News 

The “Good News” that Jesus came to announce mean that “God, in Him, is at hand, that he already rules amongst us as demonstrated by the miracles and healing he performs.” “Where Jesus arrives, the creative Spirit brings life and heals men from the illnesses of the body and of the spirit. God’s lordship manifests itself through man’s complete healing.”

Before a cheerful crowd that had gathered in St Peter’s Square for the Angelus, Benedict XVI with two young people from Rome’s Azione Cattolica at his side released two doves in what has become a traditional gesture.

Taking advantage of the situation the Pope cracked a joke that elicited shouts and applause among the 50,000 people in St Peter. “Sometimes they come back,” he said referring to the fact that occasionally the birds flow back into his studio.

“My dear young friends,” he added, “I know that you are committed to those of your age you who are suffering from war and poverty. Continue on the path that Jesus has shown us to build true peace!”

Before the Marian prayer, the Pope mentioned that at the time of Jesus the “term Gospel” (Evangellion) was used to proclaim Roman emperors. Whatever the content, these proclamations were seen as “good news,” news of salvation because the emperor was seen as the lord of the world and his edict were seen as heralding something good.”

sound.jpg“Applying this word to Jesus’ preaching,” the Pope said, “was heavily charged with criticism. It was like saying that God, not the emperor, was Lord of the world and that the true Gospel was that of Jesus Christ. The ‘Good News’ that Jesus proclaimed is best encapsulated by these words: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Mt, 4:17; Mk, 1:15).”

“What does this expression mean? It certainly does not mean an earthly kingdom, one found in space and time; instead, it announces that it is God who rules, that God is Lord and this Lordship is present, current and in the process of being realised. The newness of Christ’s message is thus that in Him God is at hand, that he already rules amongst us as demonstrated by the miracles and healing he performs.”

“God rules through his Son made man and the power of the Holy Spirit, called the “the finger of God” (cf Lk, 11:20). Where Jesus arrives, the creative Spirit brings life and heals men from the illnesses of the body and of the spirit.”

“God’s lordship manifests itself through man’s complete healing. This way Jesus shows God’s true face, God at hand; full of mercy for every human being; the God that gives us the gift of life in abundance, his own life. The Kingdom of God is therefore life that asserts itself over death, the light of truth that dissipates the darkness of ignorance and lies.”

“Let us pray the Holiest Mary,” the Pope said, “that She may always obtain for the Church the same passion for the Kingdom of God that moved the mission of Jesus Christ: passion for God; for his lordship over love and life; passion for man encountered in truth with the desire of giving him his most precious treasure, the love of God, his Creator and Father.”

After the Angelus, the Pope talked about today’s celebration of World Leprosy Day launched 55 years ago by Raoul Follereau.

“To all those who suffer from this disease I offer my warmest greetings and a special prayer, which I extent to all those who, by various means, work on their behalf, especially the volunteers who belong to the Association of friends of Raoul Follereau”.
