The relic of the Blood has remained perfectly intact and is kept in a precious monstrance made at the request of Countess Eleonora Batthyany- Strattman in 1721.

Croatia: Ludbreg Part 1

During Mass at Ludbreg in 1411, a priest doubted whether the Body and Blood of Christ were really present in the Eucharistic species. Immediately after being consecrated, the wine turned into Blood. Today the precious relic of the miraculous Blood still draws thousands of the faithful, and every year at the beginning of September the so-called “Sveta Nedilja – Holy Sunday” is celebrated for an entire week in honor of the Eucharistic miracle that occurred in 1411.
