As the Vatican continues to evaluate a reported Eucharistic miracle in Poland, the priest of the parish where it occurred says that the extraordinary event has led to conversions.
Fr. Andrzej Ziombra is parish priest of St. Hyacinth in Legnica, Poland, where a consecrated Host was reportedly found to contain a fragment of a heart muscle.
On Christmas Day 2013, a consecrated Host fell to the floor. It was picked up and placed in a container with water, in accordance with Church procedures. Soon after, red stains appeared on the host, according to Ziombra.
The local bishop at the time, Bishop Stefan Cichy, commissioned a scientific study of the Host. In February 2014, a small fragment was placed on a corporal and underwent forensic testing by two university medical departments.
