It’s good to see a discussion of refocusing the Church on the Eucharist.

According to Zenit, Catholics will be encouraged to rediscover the central place of the Blessed Sacrament in Christian life, said Archbishop Luigi Ventura about the upcoming Eucharistic Congress in Quebec.

Archbishop Ventura, the apostolic nuncio to Canada, said this in his traditional address at the opening of the annual general meeting of the Canadian Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Cornwall yesterday.

Also in his opening remarks about the congress, Archbishop Ventura said: “The celebrations that surround the 400th anniversary of Quebec City, and consequently the arrival of the Catholic faith to this part of the world, enrich themselves through openness to the spiritual dimension…The faithful will thus have another opportunity to rediscover the central place of the Eucharist in Christian life and the fundamental role that it has played and can play again in the building of a better society.”

I do believe that our reverence for the eucharist is indicative of how vibrant the faith is. It’s so good to see some taking it seriously. Hopefully, Archbishop Ventura’s fervor will be contagious.
