In 1290, a group of Lithuanians was invading the village of Glotowo in Poland. To prevent some theft or some other unfortunate occurrence, a priest there decided to bury a gold-plated ciborium. He overlooked, however, the consecrated Host that remained inside. The village was destroyed and, for years afterward, the location of the ciborium was unknown.

One day, a farmer was plowing his field. It was near sunset and long shadows could be seen in the fading light. Suddenly, the oxen which were pulling the plow stopped. The farmer was somewhat upset with the animals until he noticed that it had gotten brighter all at once, as if it were about midday. There was a light coming from the ground near the oxen.

The farmer started digging in the vicinity of the light and discovered the ciborium. In it he found a Host that was as white as snow.

People learned of the find and, in a grand procession, the Host was brought to the church of Dobre Miasto. A little church was built on the site where the Host was found. That church was replaced by a larger one in the eighteenth century.

At the shrine of Glotowo, the Host can be seen to this day, still intact.
