The Salt Lake Catholic Diocese has started an investigation into what is being described as a ‘bleeding host’ at a local parish, St. Francis Xavier in Kearns.

Images of the host, given to 2News, showed circles of deep red, and a section with a pink hue.

As we understand it, a boy was given communion by a local priest. A relative told the priest the child had not yet made his first communion — or wasn’t Catholic — and handed back the host, a wafer the faithful believe becomes the body and blood of Jesus Christ during consecration in Mass.

The priest put the host in water, and later noticed dramatic change.

Now, a five member diocesan committee will look into whether there is — or is not — an explanation.

“The work of the committee is now underway,” said Monsignor M. Francis Mannion, the panel chair. “The results will be made public.”

He added, the host is “in the custody of the diocesan administrator.”

I've been wondering, what prompted the priest to put the host in water? I've never heard of doing that in the event that a host is returned after being stolen or improperly distributed.

Placing the Host in water makes it denature to a near liquid state and can be disposed of properly afterward. It was placed in the water because the pedigree of the Host was questionable; as in unclear what happened to it once it left the Minister's hands. This is common practice, as I learned it in preparation to become an EME.

Thanks! I learn something new here every day Smile
All praise to Jesus, present in the Blessed Sacrament, who lets Himself be known to His people for His Own greater glory.
