Cardiologist Examines Jesus: The Stunning Science Behind Eucharistic Miracles

Cardiologist Examines Jesus: The Stunning Science Behind Eucharistic Miracles
Serafini Franco
$19.95

The Gospels might not be “good enough” for modernity, and science is certainly its god. But neither is an impediment to the one, true God. Indeed, He is using methods of the twenty-first century — His twenty-first century — to show how our Faith can be proven through Eucharistic miracles with clinical scientific precision.

In this astounding book, prominent cardiologist and author Dr. Franco Serafini walks us through the extensive medical and scientific research into five Eucharistic miracles, unveiling the stunning testimonies of hematologists, oncologists, neurologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, and more who all concluded the same thing: the five Eucharistic miracles are undeniably authentic.

In surprising and fascinating ways, each of these miracles relates to the others: all reveal heart muscle tissue, many reveal a heart that was experiencing extreme suffering, and some reveal a heart still enduring tissue trauma.

You’ll learn how the human DNA found in Eucharistic substances was identified, what kept a revered eighth-century relic alive until the twenty-first century, and how the identical blood group recurred in the unique miracles to provide contemporary man with a thrilling statistical fortress. Best of all, you’ll be armed with the scientific data to prove not only that God is still active in the world but that He desires all of us to be in union with Him through His Most Precious Body and Blood.

Catholic Scientist Champions the Shroud of Turin

Catholic Scientist Champions the Shroud of Turin
Verschuuren, Gerard
$17.95
The Shroud of Turin is celebrated as one of the holiest and most important relics of Christianity, with millions of pilgrims traveling to see the precious cloth in Italy on the rare occasions it has been displayed. Yet despite its enormous global popularity, the Shroud's authenticity is not without question. To address lingering uncertainties head-on, celebrated Catholic scientist Dr. Gerard Verschuuren explores and synthesizes the various scientific studies conducted on the Shroud --including those analyzing DNA, blood, carbon, pollen, textile, and anatomical issues -- as well as its storied history. He then scrutinizes the motives of the individual scientists performing these studies, the assumptions they employed to arrive at their conclusions, and the instances in which they veered into areas outside the competence of the sciences. After this exhaustive and highly satisfying analysis, Dr. Verschuuren reveals the reasons why he believes the Shroud of Turin to be the actual burial cloth of Jesus Christ, the crucified Savior of mankind. And he celebrates it as a rare instance in which the science and faith communities can meet each other -- and agree.

    Eucharistic Miracles, and Eucharistic Phenomena in the Lives of the Sain
    $16.95
    On many occasions throughout the history of the Catholic Church, God has provided visible proof of the invisible reality of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. In her book, Eucharistic Miracles, Joan Carroll Cruz documents 36 such miracles which occurred from 800 AD to the present day. This book tells of consecrated Hosts which have visibly turned to human flesh, have bled, levitated, and which 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, and where some 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, received Communication miraculously, or experienced raptures, ecstasies, levitations, visions, locutions, and more. Pictures and photographs of the miracles, the churches they took place in, and the people involved are also included, adding the final touch to a comprehensive, detailed, and extraordinary overview of these miraculous happenings. 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.

    Expect and Experience Miracles

    Expect and Experience Miracles
    Greco, Steve L
    $12.00
    This book, Expect and Experience Miracles, is drawn from one of Steve's presentations to Catholic groups in this country and abroad-one he considers the most important message he's been given to preach to all God's children. The book reflects Steve's grounding in Scripture and authentic desire to serve God by serving others. Before listening to Steve's presentation on expecting and experiencing miracles, I had a passing acquaintance with them, but really didn't consider direct divine interventions an integral part of my life. God has bigger miraculous fish to fry for really dire situations, perilous crises and truly deserving souls. I'm just a middle-aged woman with a good husband and four grown children simply trying to put one spiritual foot in front of the other on the faith journey of life. But, as Steve testifies in this book, miracles aren't just for the "saintly or holy people." Miracles are meant for me and you-and the butcher, baker and candlestick maker, the postal carrier, late night diner fry cook, the star athlete, the computer whiz and the Fortune 500 CEO, the dog-walker and the space lab astronaut. Each and every one of us on God's beautiful blue marble of a planet are recipients of God's miracles. And, as Steve tells us, some of these divine interventions are spectacular and jaw-dropping, while others are sweetly simple, but important at the moment (like making the green light when late for an important meeting). But big, small or medium in scope, each of us can expect and experience miracles if we have open hearts, faith and trust in God. Steve helps us do exactly that.

    Incorruptibles: A Study of the Incorruption of the bodies of Various Catholic Sa
    Cruz, Joan Carroll
    $16.95
    Continuously popular since it first appeared in 1977, "The""Incorruptibles" remains the acknowledged classic on the bodies of saints that did not undergo decomposition after death. Many remained fresh and flexible for years, or even centuries. After explaining both natural and artificial mummification, the author shows that the incorruption of the saints' bodies fits neither category but rather constitutes a much greater phenomenon that is unexplained by modern science to this day. The author presents 102 canonized saints, beati, and venerables, summarizing their lives, the discovery of their incorruption, and investigations by Church and medical authorities. The incorruptible bodies of saints are a consoling sign of Christ s victory over death, a confirmation of the dogma of the Resurrection of the Body, a sign that the Saints are still with us in the Mystical Body of Christ, and proof of the truth of the Catholic Faith-for only in the Catholic Church do we find this phenomenon.

    Grande-Swiatkowski, Lori J
    $11.95

    While caring for a special group of hospital patients for over four decades, Lori Jo Grande-Swiatkowski has witnessed miraculous events that have caused her to realize that the veil between the seen and unseen and Earth and heaven is quite thin.

Phyllis and Albert had been married for fifty-five years and were virtually inseparable. As he battled advanced colon cancer, Phyllis barely left his side-until he bid her farewell in a way she never expected. Sally, who had a brain tumor, prayed to Jesus for a miracle-and received one. Fatima was a beautiful Muslim woman who passionately believed in the power of prayer. But would her prayers heal her as well?

    Little Book of Hospital Miracles shares uplifting stories from a nurse that demonstrate the power of God's presence in our lives as He works little miracles every day to show us that His love never dies.

    Miracle of the Illumination of All Consciences

    Miracle of the Illumination of All Consciences
    $12.95
    From as far back as the 16th century, when St. Edmund Campion of England spoke of ?a great day that would reveal all men's consciences, ? a coming day of enlightenment has been foretold. Known as the ?Warning? or the ?Mini-Judgment?, it is purported to be a day in which God will supernaturally illuminate the conscience of every man, woman, and child on earth. Each person, then, would momentarily see the state of their soul through God's eyes and realize the truth of His existence, afterwhich, it is said the world will never be the same. This predicted event is now said to be imminent, as talk concerning the certainty of this miracle has intensified. This comprehensive and authoritative guide uses Scripture and testimony from the Saints and Visionaries to help explain the coming great miracle of God's Mercy.

    Relics: What They Are and Why They Matter

    Relics: What They Are and Why They Matter
    Cruz, Joan Carroll
    $16.95
    Scripture speaks of miracles wrought through relics: a dead man was raised when Elisha s bones touched him, and the clothing of Jesus and His apostles healed the sick. In the early Church, Masses were celebrated over the bones of the martyrs, and phials of their blood have effected countless miracles. Direct successors of the Apostles themselves speak of venerating relics; Church Fathers encourage it; throughout the ages of Catholic legacy, relics of the saints are always present.The Church takes diligent care in preserving and documenting the authenticity of her relics. Best-selling author Joan Carroll Cruz takes full advantage of these resources. With painstaking research, she exposes the details behind hundreds of the Church s most famous and beloved relics. She covers 38 second-class relicsof our Lord and Lady, such as the Holy Grail and Our Lady s Veil, and relics of all sorts from 75 favorite saints, such as St. Mary Magdalene, St. Agnes, St. Charles Borromeo, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Maria Goretti, and many more!Relics is a unique collection of years of dedicated research about the lives of the saints and the mementos they left behind, to remind us of their presence and intercession for us."

    Science and the Miraculous: How the Church Investigates the Supernatural

    Science and the Miraculous: How the Church Investigates the Supernatural
    O'Neill, Michael
    $24.95
    Can miracles be proven by science? How does the Catholic Church validate claims of the supernatural?

    Some might say that miracles are a thing of the past, relegated to a more credulous and superstitious age before humanity fully embraced the certainty and exactitude of scientific study. According to author Michael O'Neill, the "Miracle Hunter", true miracles are by definition rare, but still occur today. And in this present age of skepticism, where the worship of science and reason have pervaded the culture, the existence of the supernatural is to be appreciated now more than ever before.

    Though it may come as a surprise to some, the Catholic Church turns to science to assist in the investigation and validation of claims of supernatural phenomena and miracles that appear to violate the laws of nature and our common human experience.

    Science and the Miraculous takes readers through the Church's rigorous investigation of miraculous occurrences, including:

  • healing miracles from life-threatening conditions;
  • statues that exude human tears;
  • Eucharistic hosts visually manifesting true flesh and true blood;
  • visionaries who see the Virgin Mary in an ecstatic state;
  • saints whose bodies lay in a state of perfect preservation for centuries;
  • living people whose bodies are marked by the wounds of Christ's crucifixion;
  • and more . . .

  • The Catholic Church employs a combination of strict, centuries-old criteria for evaluating proposed cases of miracles with the most modern methods of medical examination to arrive at explanations for the purportedly inexplicable. If natural causes can be attributed or if frauds and hoaxes can be exposed, the Church will uncover the truth.

    But if science can show that miracles can and do happen, what will you believe?

    While belief in the supernatural ultimately requires faith, discover in this thorough investigation how science is a gift from God to aid our faith, and to educate our minds about the truths our heart already knows.
