Holy Trinity, Bloomington, to host exhibit, talk on ‘Eucharistic Miracles’
BLOOMINGTON — Holy Trinity Church will host “The Eucharistic Miracles of the World,” an international exhibit designed and created by Blessed Carlo Acutis, from Friday, April 8, through Palm Sunday, April 10.
In addition, the parish will welcome back Michael O’Neill, also known as “The Miracle Hunter,” for a presentation on “Miracles of the Eucharist and Lanciano” on April 10. He will speak at 1:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity, 711 N. Main St., and there will be time for questions afterward.
There is no charge, but a good-will offering will be accepted. Registration is appreciated and can be made online here, or calling the parish office at (309) 829-2197.
BLESSED ACUTIS’ WORK
The exhibit on “Eucharistic Miracles of the World” will open on April 8 after Stations of the Cross at 5:15 p.m. and be available until 8 p.m. The hours on April 9 are from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 5 to 8 p.m. On April 10, people may visit the exhibit from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Acutis, who was 15 when he died of leukemia in 2006, is known for his love of the Blessed Sacrament. One of his quotes, “The Eucharist is my highway to heaven,” was engraved on the reliquary bearing his heart that was presented at his beatification Mass on Oct. 10, 2020, in Assisi, Italy.
Blessed Acutis combined his love for the Eucharist and knowledge of computers to create an online database of eucharistic miracles around the world.
The international exhibit hosted by Holy Trinity was planned by Blessed Acutis in 2002 and has been to five of the seven continents. In the United States, it has been to thousands of parishes and more than 100 universities.
