A New Eucharistic Miracle in Mexico?
A video circulating on social media shows what appears to be a eucharistic miracle — a consecrated Host exposed for adoration by the faithful seems to “beat” like a heart. The video was recorded July 23 at Our Lady of the Rosary parish in the town of Zapotlanejo, near Guadalajara, in the Mexican state of Jalisco. Argentine priest Father Carlos Spahn, founder and superior of the Religious Family of the Immaculate Heart and Divine Mercy, who is currently ministering in Mexico, led the eucharistic adoration service. In a statement to ACI Prensa, CNA&...

Summer Faith: How Is It Different?
We are enjoying the luxuries of summer – beautiful weather, longer days, travel, outings and gatherings with family and friends from near and far. Summer allows us to take a step back and breathe a little easier. The demands of the year are put aside for a brief period of time so that we can refresh and renew ourselves.

The Spiritual Life: How the Eucharist Catechizes about the Meaning of Life
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is currently undertaking a Eucharistic Revival. The idea for it began in 2019 when the bishops decided that we needed to respond to the moment of crisis in belief in the Eucharist in which we find ourselves—not only the discouraging results of the 2019 Pew study that reported that less than 30 percent of Catholics believe in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist but also the yet-unknown impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the eucharistic practice of Catholics. The response to the idea from the body of bishops ...

The Eucharist in Art: Sharing the Reverence and Joy of St. Thomas Aquinas
Right: Saint Thomas Aquinas Submitting His Office of Corpus Domini to Pope Urban IV, c. 1403, Taddeo di Bartolo. Philadelphia Museum of Art This early 15th-century painting depicts the excellent contribution of St. Thomas Aquinas to the prayers of Mass and the Office for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, or Corpus Christi, as we know it.
