St, Juliana Falconieri, a holy virgin of the of the thirteenth century, was
known for her extraordinary devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. In her last
illness she earnestly desired to receive holy Viaticum (last Communion), but it
was impossible to comply with her request because of the nature of her illness.
At her pleas, her confessor brought the Blessed Sacrament and laid the sacred
Host on her chest. No sooner had he done so, she died and the sacred Host
disappeared. The Blessed Sacrament in response to her ardent love had passed
into her heart, leaving upon her breast the impression on the consecrated Host.
Thus did Jesus satisfy the longing of this pure soul, coming as her Viaticum to
accompany her to his heavenly kingdom.
