To the editor:
The U.S. bishops have invited the Catholics of our country to a Eucharistic Revival that began in 2021 and will conclude in 2024 with a Eucharistic Congress.
The bishops consider it urgent that we renew the Church “by enkindling a loving relationship with the Lord in the Holy Eucharist.” The three-year plan includes recommendations for Eucharistic processions and catechetical formation on the Real Presence of Christ as seen in the elements of the bread and wine and also in the poor.
(The late) Pope Benedict XVI, when Prefect for the Dicastery of the Doctrine of the Faith once wrote: “In our time, we can recall the person of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Whenever she opened the houses of her sisters to the service of the dying and outcast, the first things she asked for was a place for the tabernacle, because she knew that only beginning there would come the strength to such service. Whoever recognizes the Lord in the tabernacle, recognizes him in the suffering and the needy.”
