Plegile’s Request

In an account handed down by Paschasius Padbert from about the ninth century, a certain priest by the name of Plegile asked the Lord to be able to see him in the Holy Eucharist. The priest did not doubt the Real Presence, but rather made his request out of a longing.

During Mass one day, the priest knelt down after the consecration and made the request again. Upon arising, he did indeed see Christ, who appeared in the form of an infant. The priest then asked the Lord to conceal Himself once more in the normal form of the Host, and the vision ended.

Many other persons who were there also witnessed this miracle.
