Faith Based Communications was established to provide presentations/exhibits without charge to groups of any size on subjects related to Christian Faith anywhere in the United States or Canada. They have also has been authorized by the Vatican sponsored Real Presence organization to exhibit the Vatican International Exhibition of Eucharistic Miracles of the World.
They have selected for exhibition a subset of the 132 Eucharistic miracles (152 panels) approved by the church. The full exhibit is overwhelming for most and requires considerable time to properly peruse, whereas the 62 selected miracles (77 panels) can be absorbed during a 60-90 minute visit. The Vatican Exhibit is ordinarily made in conjunction with the presentation described below.
The Eucharistic Miracles presentation is intended as an introduction to the Vatican’s exhibit, however the presentation could easily stand alone. The presentation takes audiences through the origin of the Real Presence, addresses the various events that typically precede a Eucharistic Miracle (e.g. a priest that doubts the Real Presence, a calamity, etc.), and presents examples of each of the thirteen types of manifestations typically experienced during a Eucharistic Miracle. Scientific data associated with the study of a few of the miracles is also presented. The presentation includes modern Eucharistic Miracles to assure the audience that this is an ongoing phenomenon. Emphasis is placed on the fact that the Real Presence is there at every consecration regardless of any physical manifestations.
