The Church of the Holy Cross in Montefalco, Italy, possesses some remarkable relics of St. Clare of Montefalco (d. 1308), including her miraculous heart with its symbols of the Passion, three pellets which in a unique manner represent the Holy Trinity, and the incorrupt body of the Saint. The church also has a reliquary of the Saints blood that liquefied at various times during the centuries.
The Saint had once mentioned to her Sisters in the Augustinian community, “If you seek the Cross of Christ, take my heart; there you will find the suffering Lord.”
Again on her deathbed she repeatedly murmured, “Know that in my very heart I have and hold Christ crucified.” Soon after her death, the community, as though inspired to do this, decided to extract the heart. While they did so, the blood which rushed out was collected in a large vial which had been previously washed and purified. On opening the heart and seeing the symbols of the Passion clearly defined, the Sisters realized that this extraordinary phenomenon should be witnessed and verified by others. They then locked the heart and the vial of blood in a box and carefully secured it. The next morning the box was opened in the presence of the Chief Magistrate, Gentile di Gilberti, together with the leading physician of the town, Messer Simone da Spello, and a public notary named Angelo di Montefalco. Also attending was Fr. Guardian of the Franciscan house at Foligno. After viewing the phenomenon, they prepared a report for the Bishop of Spoleto. The heart and the blood of St. Clare were later examined carefully by other church and political dignitaries.
