The Miracle of the Eucharist of Turin when God used a Donkey to convey a message.
The History of our Church has been one of turmoil.
God uses many means to get the job done, people, situations, and very often, miracles. At Turin God Created a Miracle of the Eucharist and used a donkey.
When the Piedmontese troops crossed into the country of Exilles, and the troops from Anjou approached, all the peasants, indeed, everyone living in that area, left their homes and evacuated the area. After the battle, the troops from Anjou retreated from the countryside. The Piedmontese soldiers began looting the homes and churches in the villages. One particular soldier entered the local church in Exilles, and forced open the tabernacle door, to steal the monstrance. He grabbed it, knowing, but not caring that he had also taken the Consecrated Host contained inside, the Body of Christ.
The monstrance was used for Benedictions. The soldier threw the monstrance into his sack, and loaded it onto his donkey. The animal was uncomfortable with the sack on his back, probably because the Lord made it that way. The sack kept falling off the animalís back. The soldier wanted to get rid of his stolen goods anyway, so he sold the entire sack to the first merchant he came across, at what we would call a highly discounted price. That merchant in turn sold the sack to another merchant, who sold it to another merchant. By the time the last merchant bought the sack, he was headed for Turin. He entered the city with a mule carrying the sack.
