History

The Eucharist is 'the source and summit of the Christian life'. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch." ccc 1324 "The mode of Christ's presence under the Eucharistic species is unique...' This presence is called 'real'... because it is presence in the fullest sense: it... is a substantial presence by which Christ, God and man, makes himself wholly and entirely present.'" ccc 1374

Since the Eucharist is our Catholic Faith centerpiece, Una Fides was pleased to be able to use the U. S. Real Presence organization resources to reproduce information about Eucharistic Miracles. The Una Fides sponsored Vatican Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit made its debut at St. James Cathedral in February of 2012. Parish staff in the Orlando Diocese were invited to view the exhibit and learn how parishes could use the exhibit at no charge. Since then the exhibit has been on loan continually!

Una Fides invested $11,000 in this project to educate and inspire Catholics who yearn to know more about the Blessed Eucharist or for those who do not believe in the Real Presence. Exhibit attendees "virtually visit" the places where these Church-approved miracles have taken place and learn all the facts associated with them. They date back to the early centuries and have occurred up to our present day, all over the world. TRULY AMAZING!!

The photographic Eucharistic miracles exhibition contains 37 of the 126 Church-approved miracles in the entire exhibit. Twenty panels are also presented in Spanish and five for children. These panels were reproduced for display through the auspices of the Real Presence Eucharistic Education and Adoration Association. The traveling exhibition includes panels, easels, draping, table covers, and vertical banners. At-cost books focusing on the Eucharist, geared to different age groups, is also available to parishes.

This visually pleasing exhibition will increase awareness of the Real Presence in the Eucharist at Mass, increase devotion for Eucharist Adoration and enliven our Catholic faith by confirming its centerpiece, the Blessed Eucharist. Throughout history, Eucharistic Miracles have renewed our Church and brought fallen-away Catholics-as well as those who did not believe in the Real Presence-back to the Truth. They have the power to transform and renew our Church even today.

The exhibit has already traveled to St. James Cathedral and School, Holy Family, St. John Vianney, Blessed Trinity in Ocala, St. Mary of the Lakes in Eustis and St. Paul's of the Lakes in Leesburg and Holy Name of Jesus in Indialantic. The Miracles Exhibit made a very special appearance at the Marian Eucharistic Conference at Ave Maria, May 2012. The Miracles Exhibit will be present at the third annual Eucharistic congress June 21-23, 2012 at St. Mary Magdalen Parish. This celebration is planned by the Hispanic Ministry Office of the Diocese and offered in Spanish.
