Miraculous Bleeding Communion Wafer Draws Crowds In Mexico

The obvious question is, if this indeed is Jesus’s blood, would lab testing identify it? Via Brazil Weird News:

In the parish Maria Madre de la Iglesia (city of Guadalajara), the priest José Dolores Castellanos Gudiño revealed a transcendental experience: in prayer, a voice told him: “My dear apostle Dolores, today is a great day…I will pour out blessings for those who will be present.”

In a Eucharistic miracle, when he opened the shrine (where communion wafers are stored), inside the goblet of Consecration, was a communion wafer dipped in a dark red liquid.

The chalice with the communion wafer were removed from public display and duly forwarded for analysis to determine if the red liquid is, in fact, hematic – blood and if is human blood. The case also has been duly registered according local legal proceedings.

After Mass on Thursday, many reporters and onlookers crowded outside the church in search of news about “the communion wafer that bleeds”.

    To me, it looks like someone forgot to clean up after Communion the day before, and threw a leftover wafer in on top of the leftover red wine. Now that everybody is all excited, they can’t exactly come out and ‘fess up to being responsible. But that’s just me, I guess.

    My guess is a Transubstantiation accident. The wafer was probably in mid-transition from bread to Jesus when someone coughed it up before swallowing. I suspect that if you poke around the red goo, you’ll probably find little lumps of beard & sandal too ….

    Looks to me like someone’s been into the sacred Jesus wine. Go ahead, test it. I’m sure it won’t come back as wine.
