Jesus is in the Host

On May 8, 1902, a volcano erupted on the Caribbean island of Martinique. At 7:50 a.m., Mount Pelee sent a pyroclastic blast toward the town of St. Pierre, about 8 kilometers south southwest, at a speed of more than 100 miles per hour. Within minutes, 28,000 people were killed and 20 ships in the harbor were either destroyed or set afire. There were a total of two survivors in the town.

Another village, called Morne Rouge, was situated about 2 kilometers closer, to the south southeast. As the danger came upon them, the parish priest gave a general absolution to all the faithful, distributed Holy Communion and exposed the Blessed Sacrament for public adoration. During this time, a woman cried out, “The Sacred Heart of Jesus is in the Host.” A large number of people witnessed an image, within the Host, of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, crowned with thorns. Some also said they saw drops of His Precious Blood falling from the Heart. The vision did not end quickly; it lasted for several hours. Only when the Host was placed back into the taberacle did it end.
