The exhibit on Eucharistic Miracles conceptualized by the Italian teen himself may also be viewed at the shrine.

In a Facebook post, the Biyahe ni Kuya Carlo said the exhibit is spearheaded by the Diocese of Malolos through the initiative and generosity of Malolos Bishop Dennis Villarojo and the Diocesan Comission on Youth.

Those who will view the exhibit, however, were reminded to follow the health and safety protocols such as the wearing of face shield and mask and maintaining distance. 

Touching the image, relic and other exhibit materials are also not allowed.
The exhibit will run until Feb. 27 and will be transfered to St Michael the Archangel Parish Church, Poblacion, Marilao, Bulacan.

Acutis, a young computer programmer who died of leukemia in 2006 at the age of 15 was beatified on Oct.10, 2020, in Assisi in the Basilica of St. Francis.
