Keynote speaker for the Eucharistic Congress, Dr. Tim O’Malley said, “You can’t become a eucharistic people in the abstract… Our task is to come together. To manifest our love of Christ to the world. To become what we receive in the Eucharist.
Thousands of Catholics from across the United States are anticipated to participate in next year’s pilgrimage to the National Eucharistic Congress, part of the U.S. bishops’ three-year National Eucharistic Revival that began in 2021.
With the ceremonial opening of doors at the new chapel at St. John Vianney College Seminary in St. Paul, hundreds got their first look at the place where 92 men from 16 dioceses across eight states will pray daily both to encounter Christ and discern their vocational calling.
“Perhaps a fruit of our Eucharistic Revival will be a reinvigoration of our desire to foster ecclesial communion. It’s the Eucharist itself that establishes and reinforces the communion of believers. The Eucharist is the tie that binds.”
