May the peace, mercy and
grace of our Eucharistic Lord radiate through you,
We have a new mission
in the United States and most important as our Holy See Pope
Benedict XVI visited the United States, he has brought many messages
especially the importance of 24 Hour Eucharistic Adoration. Father
John A. Hardon, S.J., 1914-2000, quoted from his brochure, The Real
Presence Eucharistic and Adoration devotion is a gift of Divine
Providence. Many are falling away from believing in the Real Presence
of our Lord in the “Eucharist”. The Eucharist is the Source & Summit of
our “Catholic Faith & our
Father John A. Hardon,
S.J., defines a miracle for us
in his Modern Catholic Dictionary as a sensibly perceptible effect
surpassing at least the powers of visible nature produced by God to
witness to some truth or to testify to someone’s sanctity. A few months
ago, I was working under Archbishop Raymond Burke, God bless him,
as he press on in Sound Doctrine. He is a true defender of our
Catholic faith, the truth of long ago. Archbishop Raymond Burke
is now in Rome assisting God, Holy Trinity and our Holy See,
Pope Benedict XVI. I acknowledge how our Pope is being led in the
Holy Spirit to bring back our true identity of the Roman Catholic
Church. We are called to stand firm in our Catholic faith and to respect
and love each other.
are extraordinary events concerning the bread and wine consecrated
at Mass which can be experienced through the senses. They become a
visible sign of the Real Presence of Jesus. A number of these miracles
are continuing right through the present time. These miracles are not
known in the realm of Christianity. Society is rejecting such truth!
Italy is full of Eucharistic Miracles. Eucharistic Miracles can help us
understand, appreciate and love the Sacred Eucharist. We must never
forget nor fail to mention that the Eucharist is the true, great,
inexhaustible daily miracle. Pope Benedict XVI is interested in
promoting this mission in the United States.
Jesus Christ is present in
a true, real, substantial way with His Body and Soul. He Is Present in a
sacramental way under the species of bread and wine, Christ whole and
entire, God and man, making His sacrifice on the cross present and
actual. He becomes our nourishment, real food and real drink, uniting us
with Him and with each other.
Under the kindness and
willingness of Antonia Salzaro Acutis of the Pontifical Academy Cultorum
Martyrum, we present this lovely 126 photographic Eucharistic Miracles
Exhibition to the people of the United States of America. Thousands of
CD’s with the pictures were sent out through- out the United States for
people to create their own sets and if they can, to promote this
Eucharistic Mission of the Vatican approved Eucharistic Miracles Carlos
Acuties, a 15 year old boy in Milan, Italy compiled the Vatican
International Exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracles of the world. His
faith has touched many, even his own Mother Antonia Salzano Acutis who
shared the Exhibition with the people of the United States. Her son truly
researched the many Miracles and arranged them into an exhibition. God
Bless The Eucharistic Mission was seen by Our Lord as necessary to
touch the many souls that doubt in the Real Presence. Our Lord never gives
up on us. As a Lay Dominican I must share the passion for the Eucharist by
Saint Thomas, a Dominican Friar. Through the Grace of God and the
Eucharistic Miracle of Bolsena in 1264, St Dominic composed the Liturgy of
the Solemnity and Blood of Christ, "Corpus Christi".
Jesus said, "So, you could not watch
me one hour?" (Matthew 26:40)
Ever since I can remember the Catholic faith encouraged us to spend time
in the true Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. To
us Jesus is truly present and not just a symbol. The Real Presence of our
Lord in the Blessed Sacrament been a source of joy and has built our
Catholic faith for generation to generation. Mother Church has taught and
inspired us, leading us to Christ in His Real Presence. We are called to
attend as often as we can to keep watch with Christ Jesus.
Like St. Thomas The Apostle many doubt
in the Real Presence of our Lord. Our Lord had to prove to Thomas that it
was truly Him, the Resurrected Lord and Savior. Today, Jesus Christ still
is trying to help others in their disbelief of Him in the Real Presence,
the Eucharist, the Eternal Life, Jesus Christ Himself. The Eucharist is
the most extraordinary gift given to us by Jesus Christ Himself. Jesus
never used the word "Transubstantiation" but Is what He meant when He told
them to eat of His Flesh and drink of His Blood. These words were hard for
them to comprehend and so, like today, they walked away not believing in
For over 2000 years we that believe
and not seen have been blessed by Christ Jesus. Those were His words.
"Blessed are those that believe and not have seen" ...Like Thomas and the
many don't believe in His Real Presence today. They keep walking away and
they pick and chose His words from Sacred Scripture. Jesus said many
things and we are called to pray to the Holy Spirit and study our Catholic
Today we are blessed to receive in the
United States the Vatican approved Eucharistic Miracles. The Eucharistic
Miracles of the World provides a wonderful service to the work of the "New
Evangelization". Many Catholics are falling and becoming lukewarm
especially in believing in the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Blessed
Sacrament. This exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracles have strengthened
the faith of many especially the lukewarm. Many Catholic Christians have
returned to the Catholic Church. Many of our blessed Priest were touched
by Jesus Christ in a Eucharistic Miracle realizing that he had been
Ordained a priest for the Eucharist. There is no holy Mass celebrated
without a Priest. We need to pray for all of our Priest throughout the
world. Let our High Priest in the Eucharist be the Heat of the Priest.
A Dominican Friar, Father Gabriel O'Donnell, a theologian wrote a book
"Born Of The Eucharist" concerning Priest.
You will find that many of our
different Diocese have groups or committees that promote Eucharist
Adoration. They offer Eucharistic Conferences, Eucharistic Materials,
Prayers, Devotions and resources like prayer cards, pamphlets and
brochures. Many parishes offer Perpetual Adoration and encourage and teach
the younger generation to understand the true meaning of the Real Presence
of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
A great promoter of the
exhibition is Monsignor Raffaello Martinelli of St. Ambrose and St.
Charles Basilica, an official of the Congregation for the
Doctrine of the Faith, and member of Clement I, Pope and Martyr. He
presents some of the principle Eucharistic Miracles that took place
throughout the ages in various countries of the world that have been
recognized by the Church.
The complete exhibition consists of
the approved 126 Eucharistic Miracles, the history, date and location,
displayed as photographic panels and stands that were provided by the
former President, Mr. Mike Mortimer. He also initiated and motivated
me to proceed with this mission. Mr. Mike Mortimer, Apostolate was the
"Traveling Eucharistic Miracles Exhibition".
many independent promoters spreading this mission in good faith and
Archbishop Raymond Burke, before leaving, blessed us and wrote that we may
continue the great work and efforts in spreading this Eucharistic Mission,
like you are already doing.
In my experience, a
Eucharistic Conference, complete with an “Itinerary Preacher”
is a wonderful compliment to the “Traveling Eucharistic Exhibition”
that draws the interest of thousands of faithful people, youth, young
adults and children. This mission has proven to be fruitful for the honor
and glory of God. We need the Exhibition and the Preacher to preach the
Sacred Word. Please glance at the many pictures of my Eucharistic
Conferences on this Web-site and enjoy the pictures from the different
travels and Eucharistic Conference.
The “Eucharistic Conference’
usually begins on Thursday late afternoon by opening the “Eucharistic
Exhibition” to the public. The Eucharistic Conference would
consist of “Devotional Prayers”, such as the “Rosary” and I
usually invite others to pray the Rosary the Dominican way of
praying the Rosary, we pray the “Divine Mercy
Chaplet” and " St. Michael's Chaplet", I lead “Contemplative Prayers” in deep solitude,
meditation in the “Real Presence” of our Lord in the Eucharist.
This is a moment of silence in “Adoration”, followed by the “Sacrament
of Reconciliation”, Sacred Holy Mass, a “Preaching Session” after Mass and
closing with questions, procession and Benediction. We can’t leave the
Choir out! We close the
evening with one last look at the miracles for that evening and followed
by a Social. This Conference is from Thursday to Sunday after the last
Mass. Many times, I am so pleased with the service I receive from the
Knights of Columbus. Grateful we all
are for their help and presence!
is done through different resources, like your local “Catholic Radio”,
local communities paper, Catholic Diocese Courier, all Church Bulletins at
the many different sister Parishes as we work together in promoting the
Source and Summit of our Catholic “Faith”, the root to a supernatural life
that leads to the eternal life! Praise Jesus Christ our Savior! I would
need over 25, 8 feet long tables and a Hall. Other times, the
Pastor adds an extra larger Advertisement to truly spread this Event!
Please look at the pictures on this site. I do promote evangelization
materials and sell Mini Religious Sculptures, to continue to
purchase more materials as I travel. I promote and spread all of my
faith educating evangelization tools and materials in local Parishes.
