"They took the body of Jesus and bound it with burial clothes along with the spices".           John 19:40

In the place where he had been crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had yet been buried. So they laid Jesus there. John 19:41,42

A Eucharistic Miracle

APEA received this picture from a recently retired priest who was given permission by his bishop to reserve the Blessed Sacrament in a chapel in his home. Along with the picture he sent a letter entitled 'A Eucharistic Miracle.' In the letter he wrote: "The chapel is on the second floor of my home. The Eucharist had been reserved there a week or so when this picture was taken from the porch of a neighbor's home, looking down towards my house.

      "The person taking the picture was enamored by the beauty of the valley and decided to take a picture for her collection. When she aimed the camera towards the valley and tried to focus for the picture, she says the light coming from my house was so bright that she had a hard time even looking in that direction. (It was a cloudy day and I did not have a light on in the room/chapel where the light appears to be coming from.) She took the picture and the image - the Star of David - is what came out on her digital camera. She did not know what to make of it. Not being Catholic, she had no understanding of the Sacrament of the Eucharist (Holy Communion).

      "My opinion is that Our Lord wanted to give us a beautiful reminder that He is truly
present in the Eucharist - Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity! It is a reminder that he is with us always, and that we are never alone, that he is the Son of God and the Son of Man. It is a vivid reminder that he truly suffered and died on the cross and that he is present in this world - until his Second Coming - in this most special manner: the Eucharist.

      "Just as the star appeared over the stable in Bethlehem when the Christ Child was born, so the Star of David has appeared through the window of my Chapel - to remind us of his care, love, protection, and presence in our lives today and always."
