In modern times, the relics have permitted to be examined scientifically and were found to be authentic human myocardium tissue, and the blood to be authentic human blood, and that both belong to the same blood type AB — the same blood type as that of the man of the Shroud of Turn and the type most characteristic of Middle Eastern populations. Since this miracle occured in the 8th century, well before the schism, and the Byzantines were in Italy until the 8th and 9th centuries, the Eastern Orthodox church would presumably lay claim to this miracle as well. Curious, I looked it up and ran across this:
From the Russian Sluzhebnik (Priest's Service Book):
The instruction goes on to say that if the Body assumes another appearance then the priest must make another Lamb as he did at Proskomedia. He then resumes the Liturgy with the prayer "With these blessed hosts..." which is the prayer said at the Anaphora while the choir sings, "Holy, holy, holy..." If the Blood changes appearance, then he must pour new wine into the chalice. The purpose of this is so the faithful may still receive the Body & Blood of Christ at the Liturgy.
Because in the Eucharist it does not come to us in its natural mode. If it were the case and looked, tasted, felt, and smelled of flesh and blood then it would be in its natural mode and it would be cannibalism. However, in the Eucharist we recieve substance of the Body and Blood of Christ in supernatural and sacramental mode, under the appearances of bread and wine. Because of the Eucharist's supernatural character, it is no longer cannibalism but a union with God made flesh. In the few examples where the Eucharist not only becomes Christ but also takes on the physical characteristics of flesh and blood, one would not receive communion. Such is not to be consumed but is nonetheless a miracle to cast out doubt.
