Worshippers in Argentina were stunned after a holy communion bread, reportedly started “bleeding.”
It happened at a rehabilitation center for substance addicts in the Argentinian city of Rafael recently.
The priest, Juan Ternengo, said: “There was a deep red colour, coming out of the host, while the young people were singing and praying.”

Worshippers started crying and praying as the alleged phenomenon unfolded, believing it to be a religious sign right at the onset of the Easter weekend.
Local media reports indicate that the priest and bishop conducting the service took the bread away for further investigations, including by investigators from the Vatican.

The Diocese of Rafaela later released a statement that said: “The Church in these cases and other similar ones asks that with prudence and moderation, the event be judged with the aim of shedding light and making certain what occurred.”
The Diocese added that there have been similar cases before in which the presence of Jesus Christ became apparent through “this unique form of manifestation.” It urged faithfuls to await the outcome of the investigation and to renew their faiths in the process.
