In 1411, a thief broke into a parish church in the village of Weiten and stole a consecrated Host. There had been thefts of Hosts around that time and authorities began to keep them in the sacristy. This was not enough to stop this theft.

The thief in this case got on his horse and headed for the village of Spitz nearby. He took a side road that went through the valley of Mühldorf. At a certain spot, his horse stopped and would move no further. The man beat him, but the horse would not yield. Some workers in a nearby field came to help, but none of them could get the horse to budge.

Then all at once, the horse bolted and the Host fell to the ground. No one noticed.

A few days later, a woman named Mrs. Scheck, from Mannersdorf, came by and noticed the Host encircled in a strong light. In great wonder, she picked up the Holy Eucharist and noticed that the consecrated Host was broken in two Parts but remained joined together by threads of Bleeding Flesh. Greatly moved and at her own expense, she built a small chapel on the spot.

Great crowds came every year and it became necessary to build a larger church.
