A traveling exhibit from the Vatican is on display in the Hartman Gallery of the Dayton Memorial Library from Dec. 2nd – Dec. 12th. These displays report on the traditions of the Catholic Church that attribute various miracles to the presence of the Eucharist (communion hosts/wafers) that are consecrated as part of the Catholic Mass. In Catholic belief, the consecrated host represents the real presence of Jesus Christ, and its reception is considered one of our seven primary sacramental activities. As such, it is at the center of Catholic worship and belief.
The display will be at Regis until Dec. 12th, when it will be sent to the Archdiocese of Denver Pastoral Center for another week.
Some images from the Eucharistic Miracles exhibit are available online through the project’s main website:
