Who was Carlo?
'The Eucharist is my motorway to heaven.'
A future Patron Saint of the Internet?
Carlo fell in love with Jesus and Mary, as a small child, and decided that he would go to Mass every day and pray the Rosary every day. And from the age of 7, this is exactly what he did. At the age of 11 he became a catechist in his local Italian Parish and also discovered the Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano. Carlo was amazed by this Miracle and shocked that information about Eucharistic Miracles wasn't readily available. He decided to change this. Widely regarded as a computer genius, he designed the website www.miracolieucaristici.org, and, with the help of his parents, set about collating all the Eucharistic Miracles that have been approved by the Church. This was to take three years. Shortly after completing the project Carlo became ill with what appeared to be a virus, but which transpired to be fulminant leukaemia. Carlo died just a week later. His downloadable, online Exhibtion, rapidly spread all over the world. Carlo's progress towards Beatification has been unusually rapid, and there is talk that he will become a Patron Saint of the Internet.
A warm hearted and generous child who was loved by his many friends
and his many pets!
Although Carlo was a conscientious student and studied hard, he was a normal boy, who loved football and his friends, towards whom he was ever generous with his time and in whatever other way he might help them. Carlo also loved his pets.

A Johannine Spirituality
'We can all be the 'Beloved' disciple.'
Carlo taught that we can all be like John, the Beloved disciple, who rested his head on Jesus' chest.
What is a EUCHARISTIC MIRACLE?
The view of Aquinas
From an essay by Father Roberto Coggi, O.P.
One example of extraordinary scientific evidence
The scientific evidence of these Eucharistic Miracles is staggering. This is one detail that stands out. At a molecular level this Eucharistic miracle of Sokolka can be observed changing from bread into human flesh. Not even the scientists at NASA could reproduce this effect.
Most of the things you need to know in order to host the Exhibition
Bringing you the Exhibition, Talks and Resources
In 2017 Anna began to facilitate the touring of the Exhibition in England. You can simply book the Exhibition panels or enlist more help from Anna in the hosting of the Exhibition.
'Although I'm presently based abroad again, I'm frequently back in the UK and would be happy to help you organise an Exhibition or a Eucharistic Mission that uses the Exhibition and Carlo's spirituality as a context and backdrop. From the autumn 2021 I hope to be back permanently in the UK and working full time on mission.'
Anna is also available to give talks on the life and spirituality of Carlo Acutis and on his Eucharistic Miracles Exhibition. She has also designed a 4 session Small Group programme that can run in conjunction with the Exhibition called 'Abide in Me.'
Mounting the Exhibition
The Exhibition consists of about 160 posters. At present there are two sets in England; the full set and a smaller set of 60 posters. They are very easy to work with. They are very light but strong and plasticised. They measure 60cm by 80cm. Both sets contain the 20 most significant posters. This means that they include the Miracle of Lanciano and all the most recent Eucharistic Miracles.
On both a wall and a wooden surface they attach perfectly well with blu tac, albeit you need a significant quantity of blu tac! They can also be pinned to surfaces. Double sided tape can't be used due to the need to pack the Exhibition flat in between use.
So far hosts have wanted to mount at least some of the posters on special display panels.
This is a picture from St Joseph's Thame which had 60 posters for 4 weeks, combining the Exhibition with 60 hours of Adoration a week.
It is also possible to produce your own posters simply by downloading from the website www.miracolieucaristici.org These downloads are print ready. In due course more information will be added here about printing costs and specific poster recommendations for a smaller Exhibition.
The Calendar, below, is kept up to date. The Exhibition will be loaned out on a first come, first served, basis. Please allow a few days between the end of one booking and the beginning of another one.
Please note that if enquiries are made from outside the Parish or School context, enquiries will be made as to the safeguarding provisions for the proposed event.
How much does it cost?
Mounting the Exhibition
There is no charge for borrowing the Exhibition Posters, but you need to be prepared to pay for postage or to organise the transport for collection and return. The Exhibition packs up remarkably small. The 60 posters pack tightly into a light box with dimensions 80cm by 120cm by 10cm. This fits easily into the boot of a car.
The picture here is the Exhibition in Brompton Oratory. Here, they hired display boards for 3 days.

There is an English button on the DVD for English narration and subtitles.
