One Was Hanging From The Other

A man was attending Mass in St. Anthony Chapel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania one day in 1993. He made a rather demanding prayer, asking the Lord for something strange to take place if he was, as he was contemplating, supposed to become a priest.

When the priest attempted to give him Communion, he grasped a Host which was stuck to another Host. There was something strange about this, because the Hosts were not stuck together side by side, but one was hanging from the other. The priest attempted to separate them, but found that he could not. So, the man received both of the Hosts.
