From Bill Fall: When I was in Portugal in 2017 our group visited the church of St. Stephen in Santarem (derived from the name Saint Irene) where a more than 600-year-old bleeding Host is reserved above the high alter. Lucia of Fatima attended Mass here when staying for several days with a benefactor, while awaiting word when she could see her bishop before being sent away for schooling under the Dorothean nuns. Our group of pilgrims from the U.S. also had the great privilege of being able, one at a time, to climb a little ladder behind the altar to view the precious Host up close, if only for a few seconds each because of the long line queued up to do the same.
Brother André Marie, M.I.C.M.“The greatest and most powerful of all God’s angels is Saint Michael. His name means Who is like to God? This was the challenge he issued to Lucifer when Lucifer offended God and was hurled by Saint Michael out of Heaven and into hell.” https://t.co/cd6VNvX5bS14 hours ago
Brother André Marie, M.I.C.M.“His father was a Christian. But his mother, Dragomir, pretending to be a Catholic, was a pagan at heart. She did everything to make him suffer. Saint Wenceslaus was killed before the Blessed Sacrament at midnight by his brutal brother, Boleslas.” https://t.co/spHxNGw3aO2 days ago
The other day I found a short video about that miraculous Host. Here is the link:
