For three weeks in January, Manor College, a Catholic college in Jenkintown, Penn., hosted an exhibit featuring miracles that have taken place in the Blessed Sacrament.
The Vatican International Exhibition “The Eucharistic Miracles of the World” is a travelling display of photographs and detailed descriptions of miracles in the Holy Eucharist from around the world. In partnership with the Real Presence Association, The Cardinal Newman Society shares the exhibit with Catholic colleges and high schools in the United States.
The exhibit was displayed in the Manor College campus chapel where students meditated on the miracles while close to the Eucharist. The posters were displayed in conjunction with the school’s Founder’s Day celebration and the beginning of the 2014 spring semester.
Both staff and students responded positively to the exhibit. Some students thanked Manor Campus Ministry on Facebook for hosting the Miracles exhibit, and others requested copies of the posters to share with their families.
Jackie Terrizzi-Meyers, a campus ministry coordinator, noted that, “Numerous staff members commented specifically that they felt sure that spending time in the chapel sitting among the miracles would make a lasting impression on students… many students were observed in the chapel in silent prayer.”
The Cardinal Newman Society loans the Eucharistic Miracles exhibit to Catholic high schools and colleges free of charge. To learn more about how to bring the exhibit to your school or campus, please visit this page.
