Subject :Eucharistic of Lanciano
(Notes from DOXA 21 century miracles)

An 8th century Basilian monk at St. Legontian was in the middle of the double consecration of the Eucharist .When he was involved in this experience he doubted the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist . The Eucharist turned into blood and flesh .

Investigations were conducted since 1574.In 1970 -71 and taken up against partly in 1981 there took place a scientific investigation by professor and scientist Odoardo Linoli professor in Anatomy and Pathological histology and in Chemistry and clinical microscopy . Assisted by professor Ruggero Bertelli of the university of Sienna . They documented the case with a series of microscopic photographs." The preservation of the flesh and of the blood ,which were left in their natural state for 12 centuries and exposed to the action of atmospheric and biological agents ,remains an extraordinary phenomenon ."(said Linoli)
Scientific findings
1. Flesh is real flesh .Blood is real blood .
2. Flesh and blood belong to human species .
3. Flesh consists of the muscular tissue of the heart .
4.In the flesh we see present in section ,the myocardium ,the endocardium ,the vague nerve and also the left ventricle of the heart for the large thickness of the myocardium .
5. The Flesh is "heart" complete in its essential structure .
6. The flesh and blood have the same blood type :AB (blood type identical to that of the Shroud of Turin uncovered by professor Ballone .)
7. In the Blood were found proteins in the same normal proportions (percentage wise) as are found in the sero-proteic make-up of the fresh normal blood .
8. In the blood there were also minerals found chlorides,phosphorus,magnesium,potassium sodium and calcium .
9. the preservation of the flesh and of the blood which were left in their natural state for 12 centuries and exposed to the action of atmospheric and biological agents, remains an extraordinary phenomenon

Now this is one of several Eucharistic miracles approved by the church . Now, as you may have read in The Lourdes miracle cases /Atheist blog , The church has strict qualifications for cases to be considered miracles. Not only was there evidence in the above scientific findings of this being a miracle but also ,you can actually visit this Eucharist and see for yourself .I have two more miracle cases to go over in my blogs ."The Shroud of Turin" and "Our Lady of Quadulupe" . image . I may have one more atheist blog after those . I hope to start my Islam blog starting next week . It will be about the Koran and the reasons why it could not have been written by God. I hope all of the atheist viewing this will their comments so I can answer them . My goal by showing these blogs on miracles is to make them think a little further then how to take God out of everything .

subject : Lourdes
(Information from DOXA Christian thought for the 21 century web site)

There have been 66 official proclamations of miracles at Lourdes ,France. Their of course have been many more claims however the requirements did not make it for the documentation was too hard to get . There have been 6500 individuals reporting cures to the medical Bureau .Of that at least 2500 cases are considered truly remarkable . They however lack some needed requirements to advance to the next stage . (witnesses, lack of agreement on the nature of the ailment )
In the last 24 years there have been about 20 cases reported .Jean-Pierre Bely was the 66th case approved . It was officially recognized by ecclesiastical authorities .
The Process of verification has 3 stages .
1. The cured person must be examined at the Lourdes Medical Bureau .Established in 1883 the Medical Bureau receives testimony of the cured person ,of the doctor and of those who accompanied the person to Lourdes . After the preliminary examination the person is asked to return to Lourdes a year later for another examination . Many cases remain at the first level because of the difficulty of gathering the previous medical reports.A frequently this occurs with people who come from underdeveloped areas .
2. Cases passed to international Bureau
Established in 1946 ,this bureau consists of medical doctors ,psychiatrists and experts in specific diseases . The infirmity must have been serious and considered impossible to cure .No medication or treatment must have been given ,which could possibly have caused the change .The cure must be sudden and complete with no relapse . In a word a cure must be unexpalinable .No human or natural factor could have affected the cure. (The doctors of Lourdes describe it using the words "unexplainable cures " and not "miracles")The case is then referred to the Bishop of the diocese in which the individual resides .
3.Investigation by Diocesan Canonical Committee
Final words belong to the Bishop of the Diocese .

Jean-Pierre Bely's case (# 66 )
In 1984 Jean Pierre Bely was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis ,and by 1987 he was completely paralyzed .He was brought to Lourdes on a stretcher in 1987 as a participant in the October Rosary pilgrimage .On the final morning of the pilgrimage ,Mr. Bely was anointed with the sacrament of the sick . He felt a "sensation of coldness" as followed by "a gentle warmth " that seemed to fill his body ."Later I took my first steps just like a baby who is learning to walk"

Many atheists claim that we don't raise the bar high enough when it comes to miracles . As you can see with 66 miracles approved at Lourdes compared to the 6500 claims that is not the case at Lourdes . Stay tuned for the Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano in my next as we continue with my atheist blog .

( Notes taken from " How To Answer Atheist and New Agers " Father Frank Chacon and Jim Burnham)
John Paul II noted that some of these theories of Evolution can be compatible with Christianity. He however confirmed one theory that is clearly incompatible with Christianity. The idea that the human race evolved from dead matter is through purely random processes .Evolutionism is an attempt by atheists to use the biological sciences to disprove the existence of God . Atheistic evolution claims there is no need for an intelligent designer to explain human life .

Recent advances in molecular biology are contradicting the claims of atheistic evolutionists.Molecular biologists have shown that there are no simple living organisms ,no matter how small they may be . A living organism must be able to take in nutrition and chemically convert it to energy if it is to grow and multiply ,and form part of any evolutionary chain . For any living organism ,no matter how primitive to convert nutrition to energy requires biological systems that are unbelievably complicated . They are so complex that even with all of the incredible technology at our disposal , we are not even close to creating any living organism from nonliving matter. Yet atheistic evolutionists continue to insist that the first living organism was the result of chaotic processes in dead matter.
Limitations of Evolution
As a scientific theory ,evolution by natural selection has been very successful in explaining the generic similarities between all all living things . It can also account for the diversity both within species and between species . It does not explain origin of life. It tells us nothing about how life started in the first place . It cannot explain human consciousness ,our ability to perceive and understand the world around us. It cannot explain morality .Its limited to biological changes .It leaves origin of life ,consciousness ,and morality untouched .
Nothing in Evolution is incompatible with belief in God. Evolution could have been the mode by which God executed his design .He could have created directly or indirectly ,instant or slow .

Scientist and their quotes on God and Evolutionism .(not atheists)
FRANCIS CRICK discovered DNA structure .He was an evolutionist . He came to recognize the impossibility of dead matter forming a living organism through random processes.He grew to speculate that UFO's planted the first living organisms on earth.
SIR ISSAC NEWTON "This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets ,could only proceed from the counsel,and dominion of an intelligent and powerful being"(Sir Issac Newtons ,The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy ,Book III)
ALBERT EINSTEIN "Science without religion is lame,religion without science is blind ""I'm not an atheist .I don't think I can call myself a Pantheist .The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds"(Quotes from Nancy k.Franken berry's "The Faith of scientists :in their own words)Many Atheists like to quote scientists including Einstein from time to time . Here is what he would have told them today if they tried top quote him to get there points acrossed :
"There are yet people who say there is no god ,but what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views ". (Einstein letter to Prince Hubertus of Lowenstein)
ANTHONY FLEW was the most famous atheist in the world .Recently changed his mind .By obeying the Socratic command to "Follow the argument wherever it leads, " Flew examined the significance of recent scientific discoveries including the lawfulness of nature ,origin of life,and the Big Bang -and concluded that a Creator God must exist .
List of scientist in the past an present who and are not atheist (Too many to list all)
Francis Collins ,Freeman Dyson, Paul Davies , John Polkinghorne , Max Plank ,Werner Heisenberg ,and Erwin Schrodinger .
Now, If you read my blog on the founding father quotes you shouldn't be a surprised to see that the scientists and their quotes listed above were not atheists . You see, Atheists love to pass their opinions off as fact when in fact its just their wishful thinking that they are stating.So is the claim that all Scientists are atheists true? Nope .Wrong again atheists !

The Roman/Pagan Historians

Many people dont know that there were actual historians who recorded Christs existence on earth.Keep in mind that they had no reason to do this . They were pagans who did not care much for Christianity . They were professional historians who believed that anything worth doing is worth doing right . Now I will go over some of these historians in this blog .Many atheist will try and tell you that these men never even saw Jesus, however mind you these were professional historians who would rely on documents. Now Jesus would have had an arrest record and a registration record from the censuses carried out by the Romans .

PLINY THE YOUNGER(63AD-113AD) admits to torturing and executing Christians who refuse to deny Christ .
"I asked Them directly if they were Christians those who persisted ,I ordered away ....Those who denied they were or ever had been Christians worshipped both your image and images of the gods and cursed Christ . They used to gather before dawn and sing to Christ as if he were a god .........." (Pliny's letter to Emperor )

CORNELIUS TACTUS (55AD-120AD)1st and 2nd century Roman historian . Verifies the Bible account of Pontius Pilate "Christus ,the founder of the Christian name was put to death by Pontius Pilate ,procuretor of Judea in the reign of Tiberius ,but the pernicious superstition,repressed for a time ,broke out again .Not only through Judea ,where the mischief originated but through the city of Rome."(Annal XV55)

GAIUS SUETONIUS TRANQUILLUS (69-130AD) A Roman Historian. Recorded the lives of Roman Ceasars .SErved as a court official under Hadrian and as an annalist for the Imperial House .Recorded the expulsion of the Christian from Rome . Mentioned in Acts 18:2 and confirms the Christian faith being found .

"As the Jews were making constant disturbances at the instigation of Chrestus ,Claudius expelled them from Rome."(Life of Claudius 25.4 )(some say that since the name was spelled wrong that it may not have been Christ however it is highly unlikely that he is speaking of someone else . The event was recorded in the bible by Luke who was very specific in his writings in both the Gospel and Acts of the Apostles )

Thallus (52AD) On the whole world there pressed a most fearful darkness .The rocks were rect by an earthquake and many places in Judea and other districts were thrown down.This darkness Thallus in the third book of his history ,calls as appears without reason an eclipse of the sun.For the Hebrew celebrate the passover passion of our savior falls on that day before the passover,but an eclipse of the sun takes place only when the moon comes under the sun.And it cannot happen at any other time. Phlegon records that in the time of Tiberius Caesar ,at full moon ,there was a full eclipse of the sun from the sixth hour to the ninth manifestly that are of which have speak,(Chronography XVIII,47 )

MAR BAR SERAPION (70AD)"What advantages did the atheniens gain from putting Socrates to death ? Famine and Plagues came upon them as judgment of their Lord was covered with sand .What Advantages did the Jews gain from executing their wise king?It was just after that their kingdom was abolished .......Nor did the wise king die for good .He lived on in the teachings which he had given .(Letter to his son from prison)

These men above had nothing to gain for their writings about Jesus and Christianity . Yet they were credible historians .They were not Christians . Atheists believe that Alexander The Great existed . His two earliest biographies written by Arrian and Plutarch were more then 400 years after his death in 323BC .Yet historians consider them to be trustworthy .These historians were writing about Jesus and Christianity within 20 years to a century of his life on earth . Many of the most liberal critics of the gospel writings date them the following :Mark in in 70AD Matthew and Luke in 80s and John in the 90s . Atheists yet choose to believe the life of Alexander when the earliest biographies on him came out 400 years after him .The Gospel accounts of Jesus were written within 37-60 years of his life on earth . ( information from Lee Strobels The Case for Christ)That should be something for them to think about .

Wrong again Athiests !

Many atheist will stand there and tell you that this country was not founded on Christian morals .They will even go as far to say that they were barely believers of God . Well I will mention a several founding fathers that would tell them a thing or two.

CHARLES CARROL was a signer of the Declaration of independence .He wrote in his 11/4/1800 letter to James McHenry :" "Without morals a republic cannot sussist at any length of time.They therefore who are decrying the Christian religion ,who's morality is so sublime and pure..are undermining the solid foundation of morals "

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN was a very important man in this countries history . Lets take a gander at some of his quotes :" God governs in the affair of man .And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice ,is it probable the empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured in the sacred writings that except the Lord build the house ,they later in vain that build it.I firmly believe this .I also believe that without his concurring aid,we shall succeed in this political building no better then the builders of Babel"(Constitutional convention of 1787)
"In Bens 1749 plan of education for public schools in Pennsylvania ,he insisted that schools teach "The excellency of the Christian religion above all others ancient or modern "
In 1787 when Ben helped found Ben Franklin University it was dedicated as "A nursery of religion and learning ,built on Christ ,The Cornerstone . "

THOMAS JEFFERSON may have rejected certain teachings of Christianity such as the miracles of Jesus however he never claimed to be an atheist .However he did claim to be a Christian:"I am a real Christian that is to say a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus " (Letter to Benjamin Rush 4/23/1803) He wrote his own bible . However as i stated before rejected some of the teachings of Christianity . Still he quotes himself being a Christian and not an atheist .This country was never founded on atheism .

GEORGE WASHINGTON added the words "So help me God " to the oath of office . Lets check out his words : " It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible ."
"What students would learn in American schools above all is the religion of Jesus Christ "(quotes from a speech he gave to the Delaware Indians 5/12/1779)

JOHN ADAMS and JOHN HANDCOCK "We recognize no sovereign but God,and no king but Jesus"(4-18-1775)

JOHN ADAMS "The general principles upon which the fathers
achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity..... " (Written to Abagail on the day the Declaration was approved by congress)

SAMUEL ADAMS "He who made all men hath made the truths necessary to human happiness obvious to all our forefathers opened the Bible to all ". (American Independence ,8/1/1776 speech delivered at the state house in Philadelphia )

JOHN QUINCY ADAMS "The law given from Sinai (10 commandments) was a civil and municipal as well as a moral and religious code" (Letters to his son page 61)

So atheists are wrong on this matter and next time an atheist tells you that this country was not founded on Christian morals ,feel free to use the quotes here .

To all atheists reading this i would just like to say "Your wrong again atheists "

The Bleeding host of Lanciano ,Our Lady of Quadulupe , Shroud of Turin , and Lourdes , will be the miracles I go over with you . I have also a blog on the Koran . It will contain contradictions , false claims as well as stories the Koran seems to steal right out of the bible . Only difference is ,the writers of it gave the stories a twist . I will also point out the suras that the terrorists take to heart . I will break it all down blog by blog subject by subject for you . In the past I have made these long blogs and its overwhelming for you to read at times . I also have an atheist blog I started up a while back . I will make that better . I have Church father quotes verifying that this country was founded on Christian morals .I have quotes from famous scientist who believe in an an intelligent designer . I have quotes from pagan historians from the 1st and 2nd centuries that confirm Christs existence on earth . I have good arguments to make with an atheist of logic and reasoning . It will take me a little while to get it all up . Just please try and be patient with me you wont regret it .
