This is the story of a newlywed couple, Ricciarella and her husband, James Giacomo Stasio.  Now Ricciarella loved her husband James, but she felt her husband didn't give her enough attention.  James being the typical husband, when he would come home, often times he would want to read the news of the day or he would want to watch the geese fly overhead in their many formations.  You might say that James spent more time with his mule than he did with his wife Ricciarella.  At any rate, James was not very affectionate to his wife.

Ricciaralla began seeking advice when she was given the idea to visit a nearby Sorceress who advertised she could cause a man to fall in love with any woman.  So Ricciarella paid the Sorcerer a visit with the hope of a love potion.  

The Sorcerer instructed Ricciarella "Go to Communion, but don't swallow the Host. Take it home, put it in the stove, and burn it. Take the ashes, and throw them into his wine or soup. Then let me know the effect. You'll see that he will immediately become more affectionate and loving towards you”.

Ricciarella being desperate, knowing this act of sacrilege was wrong, decided to take the Sorcerer's advice. She received the Eucharist only to allow the Sacred Host to fall into the top of her blouse where no one detected her scandal.   Ricciarella took the Sacred Host and placed it on her stove when something happened that changed her life forever.  The Host transforms into flesh that actually began to bleed, and it did not burn.  Blood was smeared on the tile like pan that Ricciarella used and she panicked, she didn't know what to do with the bleeding Host turned flesh.
