There once was a poor peasant from the town of Erding, Germany about the time of 1417.

This poor peasant sought to improve his economic status as he would work very hard to get a head. But no matter what the man did, he always seemed to fall short.

Finally, he approached a friend who seemed to be managing much better and found that the friend had a strong devotion to his Catholic Faith. In that time period, it was not uncommon for the faithful to have the Eucharistic Lord in their home.

Well, the poor peasant though that he needed to have a Eucharist in his home and this might provide for him some better luck.

That was in his mind so on Holy Thursday at Mass, instead of receiving the Sacred Host, he hid it in his coat and went home.

As he was traveling home, on the course of the journey, his conscience began to deeply trouble him to the point he began to return to the church and return the Sacred Host to the Priest.

As he pulled the Eucharist out of his pocket, the Host escaped from his hands and flew away in the air. He tried in vain to catch the Sacred Host.

The peasant then went and informed the Priest who came with him to the spot where the Host flew away.

Once arriving to the location, the Priest found the Host sitting on a clump of dirt emitting a bright light. However, when the Priest went to pick up the Sacred Host, the Host again flew out of the reach of the Priest.

Like the Poor Peasant before him, the priest went to the bishop who likewise, went to the spot where the Host flew away from the priest.

The Bishop found the Host and like before, as he went to collect the Host, the Host flew away from his grasp. After this third time, the Bishop and the townspeople then decided to build a chapel in honor of the Eucharistic Wonder.
