June 27, 2011: The Corpus Christi Rainbow

~ by Mary Galvano

It was May of 1997 when I traveled to Poland on a pilgrimage with my mother and other pilgrims for the Eucharistic Congress. On this spiritual journey we witnessed miracles seen and unseen. One of theses miracles happened on May 29th on the day of Corpus Christi in Wroclaw, Poland. I would like to share with you photos from that special day.

Thousands gathered together from all over the world for the Eucharistic Congress Corpus Christi Procession.

It was a colorful pageant representing different regions of Poland.

Clergy and nuns from around the world joined in.

Part of the processional was a spectacular replica of the Eucharist.

The Monstrance holding the Eucharist passes with sweet incense surrounded it.

When the Eucharist was revealed and was passing by a miracle appeared in the sky. Clouds were not present at first but they helped ease the eyes when looking up at the brilliant sun.

A beautiful rainbow circled around the sun, and after the Holy Eucharist passed us, the rainbow disappeared.

The Eucharist was stopped at every church and cathedral in town and a homily at was given at each place until it reached its final destination, the Wroclaw Cathedral.

As told to us by nuns, the miracle of the rainbow around the sun happens each year in Poland during the Corpus Christi procession. And in 1984, this same exact thing happened during the procession at the First National Eucharistic Congress. The Holy Eucharist truly is the real presence of Christ. Even the skies know this to be true.

Dear Heavenly Father, we pray that the miracle of Corpus Christi, the most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, stays alive in our hearts so that we may have eternal life. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Have a blessed week!
