Santes of Monte Fabri, St. 861
One day, being prevented by his duties from attending Mass, St. Santes fell on his knees when he heard the bell announce the elevation of the Host during Mass. Immediately the four walls of the church opened so that he might see the altar and the Host, which was radiant with light. When the Mass was over, the walls of the church closed.
