He Fell as if Dead in a Faint

St. Lawrence of Brindisi was a native of Naples who often experienced states of ecstasy while saying Mass. One day, immediately after the Consecration, he saw “the Saviour Himself, visibly, in the sacred Host.” He appeared in the form of a little child to St. Lawrence.

Brother Adam de Rovigo was officiating at the Mass. He also “saw the Infant Jesus, and fell as if dead in a faint at the foot of the altar.”
