I hope that you will consider this pilgrimage as a gift to yourself, and join us as we embark on a journey that promises to offer renewal of faith, and time for prayer, meditation and enjoyment.

In Christ, Rev. Ignacio Morales, Pastor

The first on December 30, 1230, the parish priest named Uguccione celebrated Mass and forgot to clean out the chalice used during services. The following day, the chalice was dirty but not with the wine used but with blood. The blood, said to be the fruit of divine incarnation, was placed into a crystal ampoule and this Eucharistic miracle transformed the church into a place of pilgrimage in the city. The ampoule is still today conserved in the church within the chapel dedicated to it, the Chapel of the Miracle of the Sacrament, to the left of the main altar.

The second in 1595 there was a second miracle at Sant’Ambrogio: on Holy Friday a fire broke out in the side chapel next to the main altar. While the fire was contained quickly, in the frantic happenings pieces of a blessed host fell on the ground. After the fire, the fragments of the broken host showed no signs of them having been burned despite being in the area of the fire.
