CONSTANTINOPLE Terrorist Massacre thwarted by Miraculous intervention of Our Lady

News and Commentary by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

As you can see from the news report above (click image to read it), on Sunday morning this week 2 ISIS terrorists entered the Church of Santa Maria, on the outskirts of downtown Istanbul to commit an atrocity against the Catholics attending the 11 A. M. Mass.

There were two perpetrators. One who entered the Church brandishing a pistol, the other who waited at the door as a look out.

The intent was clearly a massacre.

There was no other ostensible motive but hatred for Christians, since the Church is run by Franciscans from Italy, a nation which is a strong supporter of friendly relations with all Islamic Countries. Franciscans too are the Order with the best relations with Muslims, ever since their founder personally met with the Sultan of Egypt shortly after the conclusion of hostilities, during the Fifth Crusade.

But, though there were no security to stop the atrocity, only 1 man was slain.

And the reason why, was a miracle. Because just as the assailant began to shoot, his pistol jammed.

Where police and soldiers cannot, Our Lady can.

The Church is dedicated to the Holy Mother of God. The Parish has a FaceBook Page, here.

But maybe someone will say, “What miracle? since one man died!” — It appears that the man who did die was  mentally disabled and Turkish, a Muslim. Killed out of hatred of Christ, he merited the crown by a baptism of blood, his presence in the Church being sufficient evidence of his desire to believe in Christ.

Just as no one can snatch a soul from the Hands of God, so He has granted that no one can snatch a child from the hands of the Mother of God. To Him be all praise and glory. Amen!

There is a follow-up report about this miracle here.

Our Lord works miracle to confound heretical and immoral proposals of Team Bergoglio


KEARNS, Utah — The Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City is investigating an event that some are calling a miracle inside the Saint Xavier church in Kearns.

Last week, during the holy communion, a host was returned to the father overseeing the service. A host is the small wafer handed out as part of the communion. The father placed the host in glass of water near the head of the church. Typically, the host will dissolve away in a few minutes.

Three days later, members of the church say the host was still floating and it appeared to be bleeding. Word spread, and the church filled with people. For a short time, the host was on display.

The Salt Lake City Diocese has taken possession of the host, appointing a committee to look into the incident. The head of the committee, Monsignor M. Francis Mannion issued this statement:

“Recently, reports of a bleeding host at St. Francis Xavier Church in Kearns have been circulating within the diocese. Monsignor Colin F. Bircumshaw, Diocesan Administrator, has appointed an ad hoc committee of individuals with various backgrounds to investigate the matter. The work of the committee is now underway. The results will be made public.

The host is now in the custody of the Diocesan Administrator. Contrary to rumor, there are NO current plans for public exposition or adoration.

Whatever the outcome of the investigation, we can use this time to renew our faith and devotion in the greatest miracle — the Real Presence of Jesus Christ that takes place at every Mass.

Msgr. M. Francis Mannion
Committee Chair”

There are no plans to make the host available for public view or adoration, according to the Diocese. However, the results of the investigation will be made public when it is complete.
