††††Living Bread, Inc is small group of individuals involved in the Rosary Bowl NW that has taken on the challenge of gathering donations for the cost of printing, incorporation, displaying and storing these 140 laminated poster boards. WE are always in need of those who believe, like we do in the powerful message these miracles can bring into an event and community.
We are devout Catholics who feel called by Christ and His Mother to share
the most precious sacrament of our faith. This great gift of Christ's Real
Presence in the Eucharist is the pinnacle of mercy. The miracle of
transubstantiation is the proverbial pebble on the pond for Catholics who
fully embrace His presence in the Living Bread.
Brian Beyer, Living Bread Inc President, has been the driving force and dedicated a great deal of time and energy for this spectacular opportunity. Brian lives in Keizer, OR with his wife. He has 3 sons that have also been involved in Rosary Bowl NW and many church sponsored events.
Father Gary Zerr, Living Bread Inc spiritual director, is the parish priest of St. Edwards Church in Keizer, OR. Father Gary has inspired and encourage our vision.
The simplest way to express what Christ asks us to believe about the Real Presence is that the Eucharist is really He. The Real Presence is the real Jesus. We are to believe that the Eucharist began in the womb of the Virgin Mary; that the flesh which the Son of God received from His Mother at the Incarnation is the same flesh into which He changed bread at the Last Supper; that the blood He received from His Mother is the same blood into which He changed wine at the Last Supper. Had she not given Him His flesh and blood there could not be a Eucharist.
We are to believe that the Eucharist is Jesus Christ - simply, without qualification. It is God become man in the fullness of His divine nature, in the fullness of His human nature, in the fullness of His body and soul, in the fullness of everything that makes Jesus Jesus. He is in the Eucharist with His human mind and will united with the Divinity, with His hands and feet, His face and features, with His eyes and lips and ears and nostrils, with His affections and emotions and, with emphasis, with His living, pulsating, physical Sacred Heart. That is what our Catholic Faith demands of us that we believe. If we believe this, we are Catholic. If we do not, we are not, no matter what people may think we are.
Father John A. Hardon S.J
Most Reverend Raymond Leo Burke Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura in Rome, he wrote this in the preface of the book.
"As we carry forward the work of the New Evangelization, the Eucharistic Mystery is the source of our direction and strength. At the same time, the deeper knowledge and love of the Holy Eucharist, born of our loving wonder and “amazement” at the mystery of God’s love for us in His Son, Jesus Christ, is our goal. To assist us in reawakening and deepening our love of the Holy Eucharist, The Real Presence Eucharistic Education and Adoration Association, an apostolate founded by the late Father John A. Hardon, S.J., tireless apostle and catechist of the Eucharist, has worked with the Pontifical Academy Cultorum Martyrum (founded to promote and deepen the veneration of the Holy Martyrs), to present, in English, the story of 126 miracles associated with faith in and worship of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Each of the miracles is venerated at a shrine, all of which have been approved by the Diocesan Bishop and some of which have the approval of the Holy See. Cooperating with the Pontifical Academy, the Real Presence Eucharistic Education and Adoration Association has made available in English the Vatican International Exhibit, The Eucharistic Miracles of the World."
