Scientific Proof of a Eucharistic Miracle in Buenos Aires Video

Eucharistic Miracle, Buenos Aires
Dr. Ricardo Castanon-Gomez PhD is a reknowned scientist, former atheist, Catholic convert, and author of the book Cuando La Palabra Hiere (When the Word Hurts). He travels the world investigating Catholic mystical phenomena and runs scientific tests to prove or disprove them. His mission began when he decided to disprove one miracle, and ended up a strong believer. He is the president and researcher of the International Group for Peace and, in the video below, is speaking at the 2008 Faith and Science Conference about his scientific investigation of a Eucharistic miracle in Buenos Aires.

Ron Tesoriero, an Australian attorney, became interested in studying Catholic mystical phenomena through science and now works to create films and documentaries. He says of Dr. Castanon-Gomez, “a fascinating man…dedicated to his work, scrupulously thorough, and courageously open-minded. As a neuropsychophysiologist, …(he is) an expert in relating the physical and chemical activities of the brain to human behavior. In challenging these claims of apparitions and revelations, he sought to use the best (that) science, medicine, and psychiatry had to offer.” (quote from

According to his own testimony, Pope Pius XII who declared the dogma of the Assumption saw the “miracle of the sun” four times.

According to his own testimony, Pope Pius XII who declared the dogma of the Assumption saw the “miracle of the sun” four times.

This information is confirmed by a handwritten, unpublished note from Pope Pius XII, which is part of the Pius XII: The Man and the Pontificate display. The display opened in the Vatican to the public today and will run through until January 6.

A commissioner of the display and a Vatican reporter for the Italian daily Il Giornale, Andrea Tornielli, explained to ZENIT that the note was found in the Pacelli family archives. It describes the “miracle of the sun,” an episode that until today had only been affirmed by the indirect testimony of Cardinal Federico Tedeschini (1873-1959), who recounted in a homily that the Holy Father had seen the miracle.

Pius XII wrote, “I have seen the ‘miracle of the sun,’ this is the pure truth.”

The miracle of the sun is most known as the episode that occurred in Fatima, Portugal, on October 13, 1917. According to the Fatima visionaries, Mary had said there would be a miracle that day so that people would come to believe. Thousands had gathered at the site of the visions, and the sun “danced,” reportedly drying instantaneously the rain-soaked land and spectators.

Pius XII’s note says that he saw the miracle in the year he was to proclaim the dogma of the Assumption, 1950, while he walked in the Vatican Gardens. He said he saw the phenomenon various times, considering it a confirmation of his plan to declare the dogma.

The papal note says that at 4.00pm on October 30, 1950, during his “habitual walk in the Vatican Gardens, reading and studying,” having arrived to the statue of Our Lady of Lourdes, “toward the top of the hill […] I was awestruck by a phenomenon that before now I had never seen.”

“The sun, which was still quite high, looked like a pale, opaque sphere, entirely surrounded by a luminous circle,” he recounted. And one could look at the sun, “without the slightest bother. There was a very light little cloud in front of it.”

The Holy Father’s note goes on to describe “the opaque sphere” that “moved outward slightly, either spinning, or moving from left to right and vice versa. But within the sphere, you could see marked movements with total clarity and without interruption.”

Pius XII said he saw the same phenomenon “the 31st of October and November 1, the day of the definition of the dogma of the Assumption, and then again November 8, and after that, no more.”

The Pope acknowledged that on other days at about the same hour, he tried to see if the phenomenon would be repeated, “but in vain – I couldn’t fix my gaze [on the sun] for even an instant; my eyes would be dazzled.”

Pius XII spoke about the incident with a few cardinals and close collaborators, such that Sister Pascalina Lehnert, the nun in charge of the papal apartments, declared that “Pius XII was very convinced of the reality of the extraordinary phenomenon, which he had seen on four occasions.”

As Pope, in 1940, Pius XII approved the Fatima apparitions, and in 1942, consecrated the entire world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

As well, Pius XII often spoke with Sister Lucia, the visionary of Fatima, and he asked her to transcribe the messages she received from the Virgin. He thus became the first Pope to know the “third secret of Fatima,” which Pope John Paul II would later make public.

Alleged Jesus Apparition Pulls Yaounde-crowds

The duplex in the Minkan neighbourhood now receives over 2,000 people a day.

The Holy Week that ended yesterday, April 20 with Easter Sunday, saw the establishment of an epicentre of faith in the Minkan neighbourhood in Yaounde on the Nsimalen International Airport road, as over 2,000 people continue arriving daily at a modern duplex where many believe they can still see an apparition of the face of Jesus Christ on a wall.
On Thursday, April 17, at 4 pm, crowds of people could be seen queued in front of the gate of the residence where the alleged apparition occurred. While several police men and women controlled the entrance, hundreds of people were in the courtyard in several lines waiting for their turn to see the image.

In groups of 20, they entered the parlour where two adolescents – Fabrice Ondja and Ndoudou Ottou – explained calmly, using pictures of the apparition projected on a flat screen TV and pointing to the fence wall across an open window where, they said, the image of Jesus could still be seen. Enchanted, some visitors placed candles, prayer intentions, flowers and offerings on the tiled floor below the window.

In turns, both adolescents recounted that on Tuesday April 15 at 5:20 pm, the lady of the house, one Amougie Lucie, entered the ninth day of her 15-day fasting period, in which she prayed to see an apparition of Jesus. Picture

WGN’s ‘Salem’ Features Forced Abortion to Devil in Easter Premiere

Nothing says “Happy Easter” like debuting a show filled with sex, Satanism and forced abortion.

WGN America’s drama “Salem” debuted Easter Sunday to a total of 2.3 million viewers, showcasing a forced abortion by witchcraft in return for “all the world.” Taking place in 17th century Massachusetts, “Salem” delves into the town’s notorious witch trials while exploring who the real witches are – sex, nudity and devil worshipping included. The show, rated for mature audiences, stars Janet Montgomery, Shane West and Seth Gabel.


Beginning with a flashback, “Salem” opens by explaining the demise – or rather creation – of “Salem’s most powerful enchantress,” Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery). Confronted with an out-of-wedlock pregnancy by her beau John Alden (Shane West) who left her for war, Mary relies on her mysterious confidante, Tituba, for help. Tituba and Mary decide on abortion in return for power from the devil.

But as they head into the dark forest to commit the deed, Mary hesitates, “I’ve changed my mind. I want to go back.” Tituba warns, “There is no place for that child in Salem,” and questions what the town’s leader might “do to you when he finds out you’re pregnant with John’s baby?” She continues, “Do not fear the woods. The woods are gonna take care of that little soul. And you.”

Against Mary’s repetitive pleas, Tituba threatens more harshly, “You want to live? Lie still.” and pushes, “You don’t have a choice, Mary.” Article continues after the video.


When Mary cries at the sight of her flat stomach after the ritual filled with a dark demons, flesh-eating beetles and black ooze crawling up her spread legs, Tituba consoles, “All the world shall be yours in return.”

Fast forward seven years, and Mary (both villainess and heroine of the show) is in love with her power, from possessing a girl to telling one character, “Can you imagine how good it feels to take everything you have, destroy all you’ve built, and devour your very soul?”

Many in the media have expressed praise for the show, including The New York Times.

Satanic Temple launches campaign to ‘protect’ children and permit them to pray to Satan “We want children to know that they are permitted to pray to Satan in school.”

Satanic Temple launches campaign to ‘protect’ children and permit them to pray to Satan

“We want children to know that they are permitted to pray to Satan in school.”

Satanists want in on the right to pray in school – as long as they can pray to the devil.

The Satanic Temple states that they are fighting for the rights of public school students to learn in a cruelty-free classroom.

In a press release, the NYC organisation declares May 15 as “Protect Children Day,” and describes a goal of ending physical and mental abuse in public schools.

After students register on Satanic Temple’s, “the Temple will then notify their respective school boards that their deeply held beliefs oppose physical and psychological abuses, including the use of corporal punishment, physical restraints, and isolation rooms as forms of punishment,” a press release states.

The Protect Children Project’s website encourages children to submit their name, email address, and the name of their school in order to receive help from the Temple. The organization maintains that submission does not make one a Temple member, and is open to all denominations.

Seminole bear attack victim: I prayed and heard Jesus tell me I’d be O.K.

Seminole County woman who survived a bear attack over the weekend told WESH-Channel 2 that while in the jaws of a bear, she prayed and heard Jesus speak to her, saying “It’s O.K. you will be at peace.”

Terri Frana, 44, was attacked in the garage of her home near Lake Mary and suffered bite marks to the head, arm and leg and claw marks to her back, according to her husband, Frank Frana, 54.

She told WESH that the bear “started pulling me toward the woods. … I just thought, ‘God, please, this can’t be the end. It can’t end like this. ‘ I literally heard Jesus say to me, ‘It’s O.K., you will be at peace with us.’

“I replied, ‘Please, my kids need me. Then the bear released my head. She let go of my head, and I knew I had to get up off that ground and get away. Otherwise, I was not going to make it.”

Wildlife officials said Sunday night that they shot an aggressive bear and put down others in the area of the attack, although, it was not clear whether any was involved in the attack on Frana.,0,3261521.story

Griffith, IN,Mary Statue crying at St. Mary Church .

GRIFFITH | What appears to be a tear-stained cheek on a statue of Mary on the grounds of St. Mary Catholic Church is moving some people to tears as others caution against a rush to judgment.

Among the skeptics is the church pastor, the Rev. Theodore Mens.

“There must be a natural explanation — the cold, the melting of the snow,” he said. “Whenever we see something, we always look for a natural reason first.”

The white statue, about 4 feet tall, depicts Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. Surrounded by tulips waiting to bloom, it stands in what parishioners call the “sunken garden” along Broad Street and is the site of the annual May crowning.

Mens said the statue has been there for at least as long as the 21 years he has been at St. Mary Church.

Majdolin Haddad, religious education secretary at St. Mary, said her daughter Reta, an aide in the fourth-grade Monday night class, told her about the tear.

Students in the class had left the church after confession, paused at the statue to pray and noticed a droplet of water clinging to the chin of Mary’s face, appearing to originate from the right eye.

A photo snapped Tuesday morning shows the droplet intact. It was gone by early afternoon.

Eyewitness who drove there.

“I just got back from Griffith, Indiana. I picked up a region GLP’er, proud_momma, to go with me, to be a witness. Yes, it is true. There is no doubt that moisture has come out of the right eye, and dribbled down the right cheek of the statue. Proud_momma had a phone and took pictures.She is going to a friends house later, to use their wireless so she can post a pic. I do not have wireless, and she has no internet.
We both checked the statue out real good, looking for various water marks, to see if by chance they came from the top or side of the head, instead of the eye. I don’t want to jump the gun, and say this is miraculous, but I stand by my findings of the right eye being the source of the moisture that dribbled down the cheek.There is no doubt about it.There are no other water track marks visible that could be the source.”

As Recorded in the Journal of Clement Brentano

When the visions of the Passion were concluded, Jesus fell on his face like one at the point of death; the angels disappeared, and the bloody sweat became more copious, so that I saw it had soaked his garment. Entire darkness reigned in the cavern, when I beheld an angel descend to Jesus. This angel was of higher stature than any whom I had before beheld, and his form was also more distinct and more resembling that of a man. He was clothed like a priest in a long floating garment, and bore before him, in his hands, a small vase, in shape resembling the chalice used at the Last Supper. At the top of this chalice, there was a small oval body, about the size of a bean, and which diffused a reddish light. The angel, without touching the earth with his feet, stretched forth his right hand to Jesus, who arose, when he placed the mysterious food in his mouth, and gave him to drink from the luminous chalice. Then he disappeared.


    Jesus having freely accepted the chalice of his sufferings, and received new strength, remained some minutes longer in the grotto, absorbed in calm meditation, and returning thanks to his Heavenly Father. He was still in deep affliction of spirit, but supernaturally comforted to such a degree as to be able to go to his disciples without tottering as he walked, or bending beneath the weight of his sufferings. His countenance was still pale and altered, but his step was firm and determined. He had wiped his face with a linen cloth, and rearranged his hair, which hung about his shoulders, matted together and damp with blood.

    When Jesus came to his disciples, they were lying, as before, against the wall of the terrace, asleep, and with their heads covered. Our Lord told them that then was not the time for sleep, but that they should arise and pray: ‘Behold the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners,’ he said: ‘Arise, let us go, behold he is at hand that will betray me. It were better for him, if that man had not been born.’ The Apostles arose in much alarm, and looked round with anxiety. When they had somewhat recovered themselves, Peter said warmly: ‘Lord, I will call the others, that so we may defend thee.’ But Jesus pointed out to them at some distance in the valley, on the other side of the Brook of Cedron, a band of armed men, who were advancing with torches, and he said that one of their number had betrayed him. He spoke calmly, exhorted them to console his Mother, and said: ‘Let us go to meet them—I shall deliver myself up without resistance into the hands of my enemies.’ He then left the Garden of Olives with the three Apostles, and went to meet the archers on the road which led from that garden to Gethsemani.

    When the Blessed Virgin, under the care of Magdalen and Salome, recovered her senses, some disciples, who had seen the soldiers approaching, conducted her back to the house of Mary, the mother of Mark. The archers took a shorter road than that which Jesus followed when he left the supper-room.


    The grotto in which Jesus had this day prayed was not the one where he usually prayed on Mount Olivet. He commonly went to a cabin at a greater distance off, where, one day, after having cursed the barren fig-tree, he had prayed in great affliction of spirit, with his arms stretched out, and leaning against a rock.

    The traces of his body and hands remained impressed on the stone, and were honoured later, but it was not known on what occasion the miracle had taken place. I have several times seen similar impressions left upon the stone, either by the Prophets of the Old Testament, or by Jesus, Mary, or some of the Apostles, and I have also seen those made by the body of St. Catherine on Mount Sinai. These impressions do not seem deep, but resemble what would be made upon a thick piece of dough, if a person leaned his hand upon it.
