For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there for ever; my eyes and my heart will be there for all time (2 Chronicles 7:16)
At Tabor Bhavan, Raite Village,
Thane District, Maharashtra, India.
From 27 August 2007 - 30 August 2007
On 27th August 2007 in the presence of around 60 retreatants when Fr Joby was concelebrating Mass along with Fr Anto (a retreatant), during the Epiclesis (that part of the prayer of consecration of the Eucharistic elements (bread and wine) by which the priest invokes the Holy Spirit ) when Fr Joby invoked the the Holy Spirit, he noticed many drops of water and blood on the altar cloth. He immediately announced to the retreatants that Jesus was pouring out His Blood and Water and continued with the Mass.
Later he testified that the wine to had changed to real Blood and that when had sipped it at communion it smelt like blood and it was not flowing as easily as wine should normally flow. After sipping he found it sticky in his mouth, a sensation which lasted for quite sometime. Fr Anto too testified of a similar experience. (Only the two priests consumed the wine(Blood)
The choir members who were near the altar too witnessed the droplets.At the end of the mass the retreatants came up to the altar and witnessed and took photographs on their mobile phones. Nine of the retreatants testified that they had seen visions of Jesus sprinkling his blood and water on to the stage.
Enclosed in a powerpoint presentation are some of the photographs (taken on mobile phones after the mass). Drops of blood continued to pour on on other days as well and some photographs have been taken on digital camera few days later.
