Gudalajara, (Mexico) -- Preparation for the Eucharistic Congress

In preparation for the 48th International Eucharistic Congress, a conference was held at La Fontana Cultural Center on March 27. Some 600 people attended. Professor Enrique Moreno Garcia, a philosopher and well-known author, gave a brief history of the international Eucharistic Congresses and their objectives. He was happy to recall that at the closing of the last Congress, held in Rome, His Holiness John Paul II had asked the whole Church to join in the one to be held in 2004 in the city of Guadalajara, under the title: “The Eucharist: Light and Life of the New Millennium.”

The Secretary General of the Congress expressed his joy at seeing so many families and young people preparing to take part in the activities scheduled for this coming October, thus manifesting their faith in the Eucharist and their commitment towards the evangelization of the world. At the end many of the participants bought the basic texts for the upcoming Eucharistic Congress and other books related to the theme, for reflection and study.
