26th november 1995 - h.10 a.m.
In the apparition of the 29th October 1995, in fact, Our Lady announced that on the 26th November, the feast of Christ the King, would be the "great day" on which another extraordinary Eucharistic event would take place.
On the 26th of November 1995, as foretold by Our Lady, the "great day" arrived according to the will of God and not of people who are used to following only earthly parameters.
We shall report the whole communication which was distributed to the journalists present on the 26th November in Via delle Benedettine.
"Today, the 26th November 1995, liturgical feast of Christ the King, at the centre of the of the community Impegno e Testimonianza, there has been a prayer meeting in preparation for an announcement - and happening - an extraordinary Eucharistic event. Despite the inclement weather, the participation of a very large number of faithful bore witness to the faith and love held for the Eucharist and Our Lady.
The prayer meeting began with the hymn "Lodate il Signore" ("Praise the Lord"), with which the faithful wished to express their joy at meeting Christ alongside their brothers and sisters. Don Claudio Gatti who has been the spiritual director of the visionary Marisa Rossi for twenty five years, in his catechesis reconstructed the history of the present event. He underlined that it, in the same way as the previous ones, is tied to the alleged apparitions of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, who within the space of a few years, in the name of God, has been giving messages which have been collected into small volumes. These highlight the essential relationship which is real and objective between the Eucharist, the Mother of the Eucharist and the Church in union with the Pope and the Bishops in communion with him.
Don Claudio also outlined that the Eucharistic apparitions occurred in an atmosphere of meditation and silence: there has never been the slightest hint of fanaticism, nor the pursuit of sensationalism or creation of a cult figure. He reminded us moreover that Jesus, on the 25th June 1995 and Our Lady on the first of July of the same year, announced the sacred Host will be visible and will reign over this holy and thaumaturgical place. It is important to remember that also at Fatima the Eucharist was made visible to three shepherds by an Angel, albeit in a different way.
Don Claudio continued saying that for this glorious day, dedicated to Christ the King of the Universe, Our Lady has asked for a novena of prayers, fasting and sacrifices: above all she has asked everyone to go to holy confession in their own parishes in preparation for the feast's Holy Mass and to live worthily the great mystery of the Eucharist and the present event. To this end we should strive to live in state of grace and to love even those who make us suffer. After Don Claudio's catechesis there followed the Holy Rosary, with meditation points being made by don Gesuino Monni alternating with hymns.
During these prayers Marisa, the visionary, arrived with a large Host in her hand, visible to everyone: according to eyewitnesses she received it when leaving her house and making her way to the outside altar. These witnesses testify to the sudden appearance of the Host in Marisa's hands and to her own genuine surprise. It should be pointed out that Marisa continued on her way on foot and not in her wheelchair as she usually did.
Having arrived at the altar Marisa gave the sacred Host to Don Claudio, who placed it in the monstrance, enthroned on the altar. While the Blessed Sacrament was being incensed the Community choir and the congregation sang and recited the Glory. The reason for this song was that it reminded us that it was with these words that the Angels told the shepherds to go to Bethlehem to meet the Saviour, the Messiah, the Lord; Our Lady, Mother of the Eucharist, in her turn invited her children to come here to meet Christ in the Eucharist. It seemed appropriate therefore to repeat the same song as the Angels.
In the rain a little procession was formed led by a number of priests; Don Claudio followed carrying the Blessed Sacrament; a group of doctors followed at the back; the procession wound through two groups of the faithful who while praying and singing were deeply moved as Christ passed by.
At the end of the procession the priest gave the Eucharistic blessing to each of the sick.
After this Jesus was placed high on the altar again; the profession of faith followed, ie the recitation of the Creed. With the final benediction of those present, the gathering ended, and the adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament by groups in turn began. This continued till midnight and will start up again on Monday 27th at 10 o'clock".
