Silent Walk Rituals in the Heart of Amsterdam

Stille Omgang, also known as the, Silent Walk is a religious miracle procession that takes place. The story goes back all the way to March 15th, 1345. A man whom was seriously ill living in Kalverstraat, thought he was going to die. He called a priest to carry-out his last rites, which included the Blessed Sacrament. The dying man vomited when being provided with his last rites and the Holy Sacrament. The Host was put into a fire and was taken from the ashes the next day. The walk signifies the Miracle of the Host. Every year in March, this event in Holland attracts people from all over who travel to the core of Amsterdam to this  Roman Catholic ritual and the miracle that took place.
