Eucharistic Congress should spark evangelization, Pope tells Irish planners

Catholic World News - November 11, 2010

An International Eucharistic Congress should make “a special contribution to the new evangelization,” Pope Benedict XVI said on November 11 as he welcomed Irish Church officials, who are preparing for next year’s Eucharistic Congress in Dublin.

Such an event, the Pope said, can “highlight the universal dimension of celebration.” He continued: “Celebration is, in fact, always a feast of faith around the Eucharistic Christ, the Christ of the supreme sacrifice for humanity, in which not only the faithful from a particular Church or nation participate, but, insofar as possible, from all over the world.”
