Eucharistic Miracles Display of Blessed Carlo Acutis

About The Exhibit

The Diocese of Bridgeport invites you to experience the Eucharistic Miracles Display, an international exhibition designed and created by Carlo Acutis The Servant of God.

The more Eucharist we receive, the more we will become like Jesus, so that on this earth we will have a foretaste of heaven.

About Carlo Acutis

Blessed Carlo Acutis was a regular young boy who loved soccer, playing video games, and going to the movies with his friends. While living a relatively normal life, there was something truly remarkable about him. He possessed a deep love and devotion to Christ in the Eucharist. As the internet was gaining popularity in the early 2000s, he helped form websites for parishes, the Vatican, and made a website with information on Eucharistic miracles. He begged his parents to take vacations to 17 different countries and journaled and took copious notes on everything he witnessed. Over a span of two-and-a-half years, he documented 187 Eucharistic miracles. In the midst of his travels, he and his family prayed before hosts that have turned into blood. It is important to note that while he did not come from an overly religious family, he was instrumental in their conversion.

In October of 2006, in the midst of his research of Eucharistic Miracles, he was diagnosed with advanced leukemia. He offered his sufferings for Pope Benedict XVI, the Church, and for his direct entry into heaven. Many were moved by his witness in the midst of his great suffering. He died on October 12, 2006. In November 2016, he was named Servant of God by Cardinal Angelo Scola, bishop of Milan. In 2018, he was declared Venerable by Pope Francis, and was beatified on October 10, 2020. He is quoted as saying: “If we stand in front of the sun, we get a tan, but if we stand before the Blessed Sacrament, we become saints.”

Blessed Carlo Acutis, pray for us!
