1. Eucharistic Miracle occurred during the Mass celebrated by
Bishop Claudio Gatti, in Rome, Italy.
On 11 June 2000, the feast of Pentecost, while I was celebrating
Holy Mass in the church "Mother of the Eucharist" a great
Eucharistic miracle took place.
I had just finished reciting the formula for the consecration of the
bread when blood began to flow from my host.
For me time has stopped. I was bent over the host which I held in
my hands and stared at the divine blood which spread over most of
I remained motionless for a time that seemed interminable to those
present, because they thought I was feeling bad, as an impressive
pallor and a strong blush alternated on my face.
2. When I recovered a little, I slowly elevated the host.
A lot of emotion was created among those present, but everything
took place in an atmosphere of profound recollection and lively
As I lowered my blood-stained host, I saw in the paten two other
large hosts which, as the Mother of the Eucharist will later say, had
been rescued from desecration and taken to the thaumaturgical
place, because "the bishop, the seer and the members of the
community love the Eucharist very much and are ready to give their
lives to defend it."
After having recited the formula for the consecration of the wine and
made the elevation of the chalice, I took the paten which contained
the consecrated host stained with blood and the other two hosts
rescued from desecration and I passed along the pews of the church
so that those present could see them up close, ascertain the
truthfulness of the fact, perceive the perfume that emanated from
the blood-stained host to bear witness in the future to the miracle
When I did "the breaking of the bread", the blood continued to drip
before the eyes of those present. Even with regret I had to consume
my blood-stained host, as prescribed by the norms 113-116 of the IV
chapter of the instructions for the celebration of Holy Mass which are
contained in the missal.
When receiving Holy Communion I tasted the sweet taste of Jesus'
blood and I felt a strong heat and an intense perfume that invaded
With this last great Eucharistic Miracle God has put his seal on all
the previous Eucharistic miracles which have been rejected by the
3. great men of the Church, who have demanded to know the name of
the priest who had consecrated the hosts which Jesus, Our Lady,
the saints and the angels have brought to the thaumaturgical place,
including the numerous hosts which have shed blood.
Just as John saw the blood and the water coming out of Jesus'
pierced side, so I, a bishop ordained by God, the visionary Marisa
Rossi and many people saw the blood coming out of the host
consecrated by me and we can repeat with the apostle: "He who
saw it has borne witness—his testimony is true, and he knows that
he tells the truth—that you also may believe." (Jn 19:35)
