"I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” (John 6:51-52)
There is no greater gift that God has given His Church than this: that the Eucharist is a visible sign of the self-sacrificing love that continues to save the world from sin.
On many occasions throughout the history of the Catholic Church, God has provided us with visible proof of the reality of the Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
In Eucharistic Miracles, Joan Carroll Cruz documents 36 miracles that occurred from 800 A.D. to the present day. This book tells of consecrated Hosts that have turned to human flesh, bled, levitated, and have become hard as flint when received by a person in mortal sin. It details the official investigations that have been made into these miracles by scientists throughout the world, as well as the locations of the miracles that can still be venerated today. Eucharistic Miracles also recounts miraculous Eucharistic phenomena in the lives of saints: saints who lived with only the Eucharist for sustenance, experienced raptures, ecstasies, levitations, visions, locutions, and much more…
Photographs of the miracles, the churches they took place in, the art they inspired, and the people involved are included—these add the final touch to a comprehensive, detailed, and extraordinary overview of these Eucharistic miracles.
Eucharistic Miracles is a superb compilation of God's visible testimony of the truth of the Catholic Faith, proving the reality of one of its loftiest mysteries: the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

This was the first book I read by JCC. The more I read by her about the many miracles that have happened throughout history, the more I wish more Catholics knew about this information. The knowledge that God has shown Himself in tangible ways strengthens your faith, letting you know He is always present. I would love to see updated editions of all of her books with all the newer miracles. I know Mrs. Cruz is no longer with us (Eternal Rest grant unto her, Lord), but if another author would take up the challenge...
I have been a catechist for over 14 years. This book is well written and a great resource. Even those that maybe consider themselves not very knowledgeable in the faith will benefit from this book. Well documented and a worth while read.
Inspiring read. Sweeping historical and all documented miracles witnessed by many!
Sadly today many dont believe in the real presence of Christ body blood soul and divinity in the Eucharist. This book can increase the readers faith and make you be more reverent towards the Eucharist.
The book was very enlightening about the miracles and I have more reverence for the holy eucharist.
