Vatican Eucharistic Miracles of the World

The Eucharist Miracle exhibit was gifted to the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois and was blessed by then Monsignor Carl Kemme at the exhibition debut on Corpus Christi weekend, 2010, at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The exhibit is available to borrow to any parish or organization in the free of charge, however you  must be able to pick it up.  We do not ship it.  

The diocese has 150 panels (out of 172) available which can be borrowed for an exhibit (all or some).  Each panel is 23.75" X 31.5" and has an attached easel. An exhibit packet has been created with more detailed information (packet includes some history, housekeeping, and a fillable reservation application and panel selection sheet). Contact Cindy at 217-698-8500, ext. 137 for further information. In order to create an educational showing at your parish, it is recommended to visit The Real Presence website.  There are audio clips with some of the miracle locations that will give you a more indepth knowledge and understanding.

There is a large amount of resources to teach children about the Eucharistic Miracles at The Real Presence webpage which includes a 274 page full color book on the Eucharist by Raffaello Martinelli.  Also four other books:  A Eucharistic Miracles and Saints (119 pages) can be printed out in its entirety along with Eucharistic Scriptual Readings for Children (37 pages) and The Eucharist, the Bread of Life (22 pages) as a PDF.  There is also a 49-minute video for children titled The Eucharist, My Highway to Heaven that can benefits families and for use in the classroom.
