The Eucharistic miracle of Bordeaux is closely connected to the Community founded in 1820 by the Venerable Father Pierre Noaille. The Community is still active today, especially in Asia and Africa. The marvel occurred twenty months after the foundation of the Community in their Church of St. Eulalia in Rue Mazarin, Bordeaux. Jesus appeared in the Host immediately after Abbot Delort, who that day was substituting for Fr. Noaille in the liturgical celebrations, gave the benediction with the Blessed Sacrament.
The great number of the faithful who were present were able to contemplate for more than twenty minutes, the apparition of Jesus giving a blessing, which was visible on the Host exposed for public adoration. In addition, someone testified to have heard Jesus saying: “I Am He Who Is”. This event was approved by the ecclesiastical authorities, among whom were the Archbishop of Bordeaux, Monsignor D’Aviau, who heard personally the witness of the faithful who attested to the marvel.
Even today it is possible to visit the chapel of the miracle and venerate the precious relic of the monstrance of the apparition.
