The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops launched the National Eucharistic Revival, a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery in the United States. The National Eucharistic Congress will be the first one in the United States in almost 50 years. It aims to draw, by way of pilgrimage, more than 80,000 Catholics into an event of preparation, equipping the faithful as “Eucharistic missionaries” to go out to the existential and physical margins of society emboldened with the flame of divine charity to be the hands, feet, and heart of Christ in the world.
