The Diocese of Trenton has created a Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit based upon the website created by Blessed Carlo Acutis to catalogue all of the Eucharistic Miracles that have taken place worldwide.

The exhibit will be available throughout the parish phase of the Eucharistic Revival for parishes of the Diocese to host for two-week periods.

Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., blessed the Eucharistic Miracles Exhibit on Oct. 12, which is Blessed Carlo’s feast day and marked the exhibit’s official launch in the Diocese. The traveling exhibit has been created to assist those who will experience it to affirm their belief in the Real Presence of the Jesus in the Eucharist. It is hoped that the relic of Blessed Carlo Acutis, which currently resides with St. Dominic Parish, Brick, can travel with the exhibit.

Circular in shape, the exhibit is divided into seven sections or “rooms.” The first six rooms include information about the Eucharistic miracles; each panel names a miracle, recounts the story of its occurrence and the country in which it took place. The panels are arranged in chronological order from the early third century through 2013. All the rooms point to the center of the exhibit.

“This is to intentionally remind viewers that the historical miracles we are learning about on the walls of the exhibit are all pointing to the miracle in front of us – Jesus, present in the Most Holy Eucharist!” the diocesan Department of Evangelization and Family Life describes in the literature sent to pastors. “In the seventh room, the Eucharist is clearly visible in the monstrance and a place has been prepared for you to rest a while in His presence.”

“We hope that Catholic adults, teen groups, school children, and religious education classes will learn about the Real Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Eucharist,” the department continued, “and will have an opportunity to spend time in Adoration before Him after they visit the exhibit.”

The exhibit is open to all and is co-sponsored by the Tom & Glory Sullivan Foundation and the diocesan Eucharistic Revival, with generous assistance from Knights of Columbus Council #17430, St. Ann Church, Browns Mills; Maria de Jesus Luna y Andrés Luna; DiSciullo Family; Angel Romero and Felipe Garrido. The exhibits include both audio and visual presentations in each space, also accommodating Spanish language groups.

Updates to this story will be made as information becomes available.
