Do Animals See Beyond the Physical?

True? I don't know, but I can certainly believe it, in light of certain Eucharistic miracles.

From Block Rosary Crusade International

On the evening of the last day of Pope John Paul II's October 1995 visit to the United States of America, he was scheduled to greet the Seminarians at Saint Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore.

It had been a very full day that began with the Holy Mass at Oriole Park in Camden Yards, a parade through downtown streets, a visit to the Basilica of the Assumption-the first cathedral in the country, lunch at a local soup kitchen run by Catholic Charities; a prayer service at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in North Baltimore; and finally a quick stop at Saint Mary’s Seminary.

The schedule was so tight that the plan was simply to greet the seminarians while they stood outside on the staircases. But the Pope made his way through their ranks and into the building. He had another plan, to greet Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament first.

When his wishes were made known, Security personnel flung into action. They swept the building paying close attention to the chapel where the Pope would be praying.

For this purpose highly trained dogs were used to detect any person who might be present.

These dogs are trained to locate survivors in collapsed buildings after earthquakes and other disasters. These highly intelligent and eager dogs quickly went through the halls, offices and classrooms and were then sent to the chapel. They went up and down the aisle, past the pews and finally into the side chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved.

Upon reaching the tabernacle, the dogs sniffed, whined, pointed, and refused to leave, their attention riveted on the tabernacle, until they were called by their handlers. They were convinced that they discovered someone there.

We Catholics know they were right — they found a real, living Person in the tabernacle!”

  1. Those dogs saw what so many Catholics today sadly do not. Praise be to Jesus, Son of the Living God and our beloved Lord and Saviour.


Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
