30th december 2003
Under the Christmas light, on December 30, 2003 in the thaumaturgical place an extraordinary and totally unexpected eucharistic miracle happened: the big host that had bled for the first time on May 16, 2000 and for the second time on April 6, 2002, bled for the third time.
On December 30, 2003 the community offered to the Lord one day of eucharistic adoration to ask forgiveness for all the sins committed in 2003. In the morning Marisa suffered the passion in a particularly bloody way, accompanied by a new abundant bleeding of the stigmata of the hands and of the forehead. Her serious health conditions didn't allow her to go down into the chapel, but she united herself in prayer to the community in her bedroom, where H.E. Mons. Claudio Gatti had exposed the big host that had bled twice, on May 16, 2000 and on April 6, 2002. In the afternoon, at the end of the H. Mass celebrated by the Bishop, while Marisa was suffering the passion in her bedroom again and the stigmata were bleeding, blood came out of the host again, to indicate the intimate and deep union between Jesus and Marisa, his bride and victim of love. The Bishop, after coming back home and ascertaining the miracle, brought the host into the chapel, where some members of the community have adored the host for some hours. On the host were present the great stains of blood due to the previous bleedings and more little stains that had flowered near the borders.
The two previous bleedings of this host had happened in circumstances similar to this one.
On May 16, 2000, while Marisa was compelled to be in bed due to the sickness, the Mother of the Eucharist put the bleeding host on a little plant in her bedroom. As soon as Marisa realized the miracle, informed the Bishop who had just finished to celebrate the H. Mass.
The Mother of the Eucharist revealed to Marisa how this eucharistic miracle had happened. A clergyman, who still occupies a very important place in the ecclesiastical hierarchy, while celebrating the H. Mass, after the consecration saw some drops of blood coming out of the big host. Instead of being delighted, he got bored for what was happening under his eyes, with an angry gesture he took away the blood-stained host and asked the attendant an other host in order to continue the celebration of the H. Mass and not to allow the people present to realize the eucharistic miracle. The celebrant was going to use the blood-stained host in a black mass, so Our Lady immediately subtracted it to the sacrilegious celebrant and brought it to us, because she knew very well that we would have welcome it with love and faith.
On April 6, 2002 the host bled for the second time. On this occasion our community had offered to God one day of prayer, eucharistic adoration and fast. Since our sister Marisa could not join the community in prayer in the chapel due to the suffering caused by the passion, she was doing eucharistic adoration in her bedroom before the Eucharist that had bled on May 16, 2000. While the Bishop was celebrating the H. Mass, Marisa noted a new bleeding of the host. Some time later she heard and saw a terrible earthquake upsetting all the house and she saw especially the objects, that were on the commode in front of her, overturning, upsetting and shattering. The supernatural event has lasted for a few seconds, then Marisa saw everything coming back unbroken to its place. This same experience was lived by those who were at the foot of the cross soon afterwards Jesus' death. "And Jesus cried again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom; and the earth shook, and the rocks were split" (Matthew 27, 50-51).
This third bleeding, happened on December 30, 2003, is a new sign of Christ's suffering due to the spiritual situation of the priests and of Church. Since the end of last summer our sister's stigmata of the hands, feet, forehead and chest have bled many times. Marisa suffers the passion for the Church, the Bishop, the community and all the people who entrust themselves to her prayers for physical and spiritual healing.
This miracle, happened in Christmas time, offers us new hints of reflection to meditate the mysteries of the Incarnation and of the Eucharist.
In the mystery of the Incarnation we contemplate the mystery of the Child-God: the divine omnipotence is hidden under the appearances of a little and undefended baby. In the same way, Jesus is really present in the Eucharist under the appearances of bread and wine. The host is fragile and undefended in the hands of the man, who can either love and adore or offend it.
In Bethlehem, the shepherds, simple and humble people, believed in the announcement of the angels and adored the Child-God witnessing without fear to everybody what they had seen. "When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another: "Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us". And they went with haste, and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. And when they saw it they made known the saying which had been told them concerning this child; and all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them" (Luke 2, 15-18).
Surely their witnessing reached the doors of Jerusalem and the ears of the supreme priests who didn't put credit in what the shepherds announced. As is written in the Gospel, only the Magi, people considered powerful and important, attracted on themselves the attention of Herod and of the supreme priests, who were upset by the new of the Saviour's birth. Herod himself, due to envy and jealousy, will try to kill the Messiah.
The thaumaturgical place is the new Bethlehem where, by God's intervention, through the numerous eucharistic miracles, the trinitary teophanies and the apparitions of the Mother of the Eucharist, a new light of grace issued from and spread all over the Church. This light generated a strong impulse, a renewed attention, an ardent faith and an extraordinary love towards the Eucharist.
As a matter of fact, today priest, bishops and cardinals do clearer and deeper catecheses, so the faithful have begun to understand the centrality, the importance and the necessity of the Eucharist in the life of each man, of families, of religious communities, of the particular Churches and of the Universal Church.
The eucharistic adoration was intensified successfully and more and more young people draw close to the Eucharist.
Unfortunately, only the little and humble men believed to all the supernatural events that happened in the thaumaturgical place, on the contrary the powerful men and the ecclesiastical authority fought against God's deeds in all ways. The conversion of three billions and five hundred millions and one persons, the triumph of Jesus the Eucharist and of the Mother of the Eucharist became reality by God's intervention and through the collaboration of the Bishop and Marisa who, even without powerful and numerous communication media and without the support of any ecclesiastical and civil authority, abandoned themselves to God, fought and suffered. The victory of Jesus the Eucharist and of the Mother of the Eucharist will be followed, how and when God likes it, by the victory of the Bishop of the Eucharist and of the victim of the Eucharist.
