Egypt: Scete

The account of this Eucharistic miracle goes back to the first centuries of Christianity and is found in the apothegm of the Fathers of the Desert who lived in the desert after the example of St. Anthony, Abbot. A monk had doubts regarding the Real Presence of Jesus in the consecrated bread and wine consecrated at Mass. After the consecration the Infant Jesus was seen in place of the bread. Three companion monks witnessed the same appearance.
