Before browsing this site you may wish to look at this one first - Jesus is Real!

    You may notice that the statues of the images of Our Lady are all praying. This reflects Our Lady's main purpose for being,
"To bear the Savior of the World and To lead all souls to her Son and to heaven, especially those in need of mercy."

"SO FAITH, HOPE, LOVE REMAIN, THESE THREE; BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE." (1 Corinthians 13:13)

    “The world’s problems today are not economics, global warming or over-population. The world has one problem which, if corrected, will correct all other problems. This major and destructive problem is what is in hearts.
    Hearts today do not embrace love of God above all else and love of neighbor as self."

Holy Love Ecumenical Ministry
(1 Corinthians 13:2 "if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.")

    The mode of Christ's presence under the Eucharistic species is unique. It raises the Eucharist above all the sacraments as "the perfection of the spiritual life and the end to which all sacraments tend." In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist "the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained."
    "This presence is called 'real' - by which is not intended to exclude the other types of presence as if they could not be 'real' too, but because it is presence in the fullest sense: that is to say, it is a substantial presence by which Christ, God and man, makes himself wholly and entirely present."
(CCC 1374 - See also EWTN)

    "You can certainly find reference to the Real Presence in John 6:43-69, where we see that many of the followers of Jesus could not accept this saying and left him.
Jesus did not say 'Hey guys, I did not mean it literally'.
Instead, He let them walk away."     (The Catholic Travel Guide)

How did the Church Fathers understand this?
    "I promised you [new Christians], who have now been baptized, a sermon in which I would explain the sacrament of the Lord’s table. . . . The bread you see on the altar, having been sanctified by the word of God, is the body of Christ. The chalice, or rather, what is in the chalice, having been sanctified by the word of God, is the blood of Christ"
[Sermons 227 (c. A.D. 411 of Saint Augustine of Hippo Regius)].

Concerning the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima:
“The children did not need the solar phenomenon
to believe what Our Lady was telling them.
But we do.”
(Fr. John Hardon, S.J.)

Editors Note:

Their destinations page, which also includes a List of Eucharistic Miracles around the World has a much more complete list by Country.
