About Carlos Acutis The exhibition is considered one of the greatest legacies of Carlo Acutis, an English-born Italian Catholic youth and computer programmer who was famed for documenting Eucharistic miracles around the world before his death from leukemia in 2006 at the age of 15. The Vatican beatified and declared him blessed on Oct. 10, 2020, just one step away from sainthood.
The exhibition has received a warm response from Catholic communities worldwide. Congregations, dioceses and church associations are promoting the exhibition to help the faithful understand the importance of the Eucharist.
“This exhibition has already been open to the public on five continents in thousands of parishes and more than 100 universities. It was also promoted by several episcopal conferences. Important basilicas and shrines also hosted Carlo’s exhibition. One among them is the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima,” said Joni Cheng, director of the Catholic Cultural Association
What is a Eucharistic Miracle? A Eucharistic miracle consists of unexplainable phenomena wherein the consecrated hosts are transformed into myocardium tissue, preserved for extended periods, surviving being thrown into a fire or bleeding.
A visit to an exhibition in Rimini, Italy, in 2002 inspired Carlo Acutis to create a website to catalogue all church-approved Eucharistic miracles. His documented miracles include one that happened in Bolsena of Italy in 1263 that prompted the Catholic Church to expand the Solemnity of the Corpus Christi (Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ) across the globe. The incident involved a priest, Peter of Prague, who was on a pilgrimage to visit the tomb of St. Peter in Italy. The priest had doubts about the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. While celebrating Mass in Bolsena, the sacred host bled. The incident strengthened the faith of the priest and garnered widespread attention from Catholics worldwide.
