May 25, 2018 - June 3, 2018
Our Lady of Peace Church will be hosting an outdoor exhibit of Eucharistic miracles around the world.
With an extensive assortment of photographs and historical descriptions, the exhibition presents some of the principal Eucharistic Miracles that took place throughout the ages in various countries of the world and which have been recognized by the Church. By means of the panels, one can “virtually visit” the places where the miracles took place. The current exhibition includes 151 panels that are used to explain 153 Eucharistic Miracles with an additional 22 country and historical panel maps, all of which are available on a DVD in both high and low definition. High definition is used to make the exhibition posters and low definition is used for all other purposes.
Canon Law On Shrines
The Eucharistic miracles shown in this exhibition have all been recognized by the local bishops, some miracles were also recognized with papal bull but not all the miracles were recognized also by the Pope. What is required is the local bishop’s approval (CANN n.1230 ss). Most of the miracles’ churches became Eucharistic sanctuaries or shrines of the Eucharistic miracle, approved by the Church.
Can. 1230 By the term shrine is understood a church or other sacred place to which numerous members of the faithful make pilgrimage for a special reason of piety, with the approval of the local ordinary.
Can. 1231 For a shrine to be called a national shrine, the conference of bishops must give its approval; for it to be called an international shrine, the approval of the Holy See is required.
