Hanging Hosts

Before becoming a priest, Anthony was trying to discern whether he should take up such a vocation. He frequented daily Mass. One day, he said to the Lord, “OK, if you want me to be a priest, make something strange, very strange happen when I receive you in Holy Communion.”

When he went up to receive the Sacrament, two Hosts were stuck together. Now sometimes that happens, but not as occurred here. Here, the Hosts were hanging from each other. They were not stuck side by side. The priest tried to separate them, but could not. So, Anthony was given both.

This happened on just the occasion when Anthony prayed for something strange.
