Blessed Carlo Acutis has earned the nicknames “God's influencer” and “cyber apostle of the Eucharist.” That's thanks to his pioneering work transforming new technology into a tool to talk about God.
His life was brief but made a tremendous impact. He designed the website miracolieucaristici.org. There he sought to show and explain to the world the principal Eucharistic miracles. It's a collection that's made its way around the globe.
Carlo Acutis' Mother
“Carlo's work was huge. He spent almost three or four years putting together this collection of Eucharistic miracles. It was diffused widely in 2005 as well. That was the year John Paul II dedicated to the Eucharist. From there, the website has spread and gathered international fame in an incredible way.”
The website, miracolieucaristici.org is available in 17 languages, among them Swahili, Urdu and Vietnamese.
Using photographs and historical descriptions, the exhibition presents parts of the Eucharistic miracles that have taken place in different countries and that the Church recognizes. It also explains the Eucharist's impact on the lives of different saints.
This project has been presented in more than 500 parishes in Italy and more than 10,000 in other countries. Anyone interested in organizing the exhibition can download the 163 or so giant slides.
It's the legacy of a young man who clearly understood that his path to heaven was the Eucharist.
