March 4, 2024 Monday of Third Week of Lent Selected Reflections: Eucharistic Miracle

Eucharistic Miracle findings presented March 4 1971: Dr. Linoli concluded the “miraculous flesh and blood,” were of human origin.

He presented his findings on March 4, 1971 and published in “Quaderni Sclavo di Diagnostica Clinica e di Laboratori” the same year.

The Catholic Catechism (1374 ) declares that “The mode of Christ’s presence under the Eucharistic species is unique. It raises the Eucharist above all the sacraments as “the perfection of the spiritual life and the end to which all the sacraments tend.” In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained.”  In Day 192 of Father Mike’s CIY podcast,  he expands on paragraphs 1396-1401. “The unity of the mystical body. The Eucharist makes the church. Those who receive the Eucharist are united more closely to Christ. Through it, Christ unites them to all the faithful in one body, the church. Communion, renews, strengthens, and deepens this incorporation into the Church already achieved by baptism.

In the eighth century, a Basilian monk, who had doubts about the real presence of Christ in the sacred species, was offering Mass, in a church dedicated to St. Legontian in the town of Lanciano. When he pronounced the words of the consecration, the host was miraculously changed into physical flesh and the wine into physical blood. In Day 192 of Father Mike’s CIY podcast,  he expands on paragraphs 1396-1401. “The unity of the mystical body. The Eucharist makes the church. Those who receive the Eucharist are united more closely to Christ. Through it, Christ unites them to all the faithful in one body, the church. Communion, renews, strengthens, and deepens this incorporation into the Church already achieved by baptism
Later the blood coagulated and the flesh remained the same. These relics were kept in the cathedral.

Centuries later, at the initiative of Archbishop Pacifico Perantoni of Lanciano, and of the provincial minister of the Franciscan Conventuals of Abruzzo, and with authorization from Rome, in November 1970 the Franciscans of Lanciano decided to have the relics examined scientifically.

Edoardo Linoli, a professor of anatomy and pathological histology, and of chemistry and clinical microscopy, and former head of the Laboratory of Pathological Anatomy at the Hospital of Arezzo, was entrusted with the study.

Dr. Linoli concluded the “miraculous flesh and blood,” were of human origin, the blood was type AB, the host was a piece of human heart and there were no traces of preservatives. He presented his findings on March 4, 1971 and published in “Quaderni Sclavo di Diagnostica Clinica e di Laboratori” the same year.

In an interview by ZENIT, a non-profit news agency that reports on the Catholic Church and matters important to it from the perspective of Catholic doctrine, Linoli explained that “as regards the flesh, I had in my hand the endocardium. Therefore, there is no doubt at all that it is cardiac tissue.”

In regard to the blood, the scientist emphasized that “the blood group is the same as that of the man of the holy Shroud of Turin, and it is particular because it has the characteristics of a man who was born and lived in the Middle East regions.”

“The AB blood group of the inhabitants of the area in fact has a percentage that extends from 0.5% to 1%, while in Palestine and the regions of the Middle East it is 14-15%,” Linoli said.

In 1973, the Higher Council of the World Health Organization (WHO) appointed a scientific commission to verify the doctor Linoli’s conclusions. The work was carried out over 15 months with a total of 500 examinations. The conclusions of all the researches confirmed his findings. The extract of the scientific research of WHO’s medical commission was published in New York and Geneva in 1976.
