|Welcome to the Burning & Bleeding Host of Betania, Venezuela website. This website was created for one purpose and one purpose only: to show absolute proof in living color by way of a video I took in Los Teques, Venezuela, that our Lord truly exists in the Eucharist, and to erase the doubts of nonbelievers and those weak in faith, as to the true presence.|
|The Bleeding Host Miracle occurred in Betania, Venezuela on December 8th, 1991 (The Feast of the Immaculate Conception) during the celebration of the Holy Mass at midnight. The celebrant, Father Otty Ossa Aristiza`bal, the Betania Chaplain, had just finished the Consecration, had broken the large Host into four pieces, and took one piece of the Host for his consumption and placed the remaining portions on the plate on the altar. When he looked down at the remaining Host, to his amazement he saw a red substance coming out of it which he described as if it was spurting from a wound. He placed the Host in a Chalice and put it in the Tabernacle until 6 a.m. the next morning. When he looked at it again it was still bleeding, so he placed it in a Monstrance and took it to show the people at Mass. Eyewitnesses saw the Host bleeding and blood accumulating on the bottom of the Monstrance. Some filmed it on their camcorders. Bishop Ricardo of Los Teques was advised, and he had the Host tested in Caracas. He was told that the red substance was IN FACT human blood. Subsequently, the Miraculous Host was taken to the convent of the Augustinian Nuns in Los Teques for safekeeping, adoration, and visitation by pilgrims.|
|I journeyed to Betania, Venezuela from 11/12/98 til 11/15/98 on a pilgrimage with an organized Prayer Group from Medford Lakes, NJ. On 11/13/98, as part of the pilgrimage, we went to see the Bleeding Host of Betania at the Chapel of the Augustinian Nuns in Los Teques. Our Spiritual Director, Father Mazzarella, said Daily Mass. When we finished, he opened the Tabernacle door, which contained the Bleeding Host. The Host was in flames, bleeding, and there was a pulsating heart bleeding in the center of the Host. I watched this for about 30 seconds or so, then the Host returned to normal. HOWEVER, I did manage to film this miracle with my camcorder!|
|There were 10-15 other people standing next to me also taking still pictures, but, they saw nothing, and nothing was recorded on their pictures except the normal condition of the Host, seen everyday.|
|I rewound the film right away and played it back to all present, including the Nuns, the Tour Guide, and the Bus Driver, and the tape revealed the Host just as I saw it: burning, bleeding, and a pulsating heart in the middle!|
|The tape was sent to the Bishop of Los Teques, Pio Bello S.J. Bishop Emeritus of Los Teques asking his advice as to what to do with the Video Vision I was given. You can view his Letter of Response on the left in the Directory.|
|When I spoke to him, I informed him that I would be in strict obedience to his advice and hoped what I witnessed was not just my mind playing tricks on me. His response was that "you can fool the mind, but the camera only films what it sees!". He advised me to evangelize the True Presence, and this has been my ministry since 11/13/98 and WILL be until my last breath.|
|A Catholic friend of mine involved in the video industry added music to it and inserted a picture of the Sacred Heart. It is a 17 minute tape, and is slow-motion introduced, so you can see the blood, flames, and pulsating heart more clearly. I welcome all requests for a copy of the video tape, for that is the main reason for this website; to share the True Presence with everyone. There is NO CHARGE FOR THE VIDEO TAPE, BUT DONATIONS ARE ACCEPTED to be able to continue reproducing the tape. They are made 500 at a time at $1.55 per tape, plus postage. NO profit or monetary gain is being made off of this Miraculous Videotape. If there is an excess amount of money, it will either go back into reproducing the tape or it will goto a Catholic cause.|
|To date, I have sent over over 8,000 tapes since 1998, and I would like it to be 8 million! The feedback (letters) I receive is OVERWHELMING as to CONVERSIONS (family and individual) that has taken place since receiving and viewing the video. Also, many people are seeing things in the flames and writing letters to me as to what they claim to see in them. I personally do not claim these things, BUT I MOST CERTAINLY DO claim seeing the flames, blood, and the pulsating heart. Requests for the tape have been made by Nuns, Priests, Prayer Groups, CCD Groups, etc. from ALL OVER the world!|
|Sometime in the near future, I intend to put some of the Conversion letter I have received on this webpage, especially people that are returning to the True Presence, who in the past were weak in faith. (There are MANY!)|
My dear Catholic friends, please help me to evangelize this video and bring our Catholic brothers and sisters back to perpetual adoration and show them this proof that our Lord is truly in the Eucharist at every daily mass and benediction.
