Prayer of the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress

We give you thanks Lord Jesus Christ, because, in the Eucharist, source of love, you gather your people and nourish them with the Bread of Life and the Chalice of Salvation; the memorial of your passion, death and resurrection. The strength that you give us through your sacrifice and your presence enables us to be for others bread which nourishes and wine which gives joy, and humble servants of reconciliation between churches and nations, proclaiming in action and in word that you alone are the Lord, the source of every life. Amen.

The 52nd International Eucharistic Congress

will take place in Budapest from 5 – 12 September on the theme ‘All my springs are in you’ (Psalm 87:7).  Pope Francis will visit Budapest on 12 September 2021 to participate in the Closing Mass of the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress.

 

Appeal to all Christians

Pope Francis, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury also note that this is the first time they have felt compelled to jointly address “the urgency of sustainability, its impact on persistent poverty, and the importance of global cooperation.”

“Caring for God’s creation is a spiritual commission requiring a response of commitment,” they said. “This is a critical moment. Our children’s future and the future of our common home depend on it.”

 

Seeing your life through the lens of the Gospel

  1.   Who do you say that I am?' Imagine Jesus putting this question to you. How would you answer it? How would you answer it, not in words taken from a catechism or textbook, but from your own experience of the significance of Jesus in your life? What does Jesus mean to you? What does his gospel message mean to you?
2.    Jesus went on to teach his disciples that following him would be hard at times. There would be a price to pay. Perhaps you also have found that imitating the love and compassion of Jesus is not an easy road? Nor does it come easy to have the constant trust in God that Jesus had. Yet Jesus tells us that this is the way to life. Would you agree?
3.    There is a natural human tendency to shy away from what is painful or difficult. Yet if that is our standard pattern of behaviour, we will not get far in reaching our potential. We will never find who we are capable of being. When have you found it worthwhile to face difficulties, persevere, 'carry your cross' for a while to achieve some goal that was important to you?
