The Eucharist is the heart of the Church. Where Eucharistic life flourishes, there the life of the Church will blossom. ~ Pope Saint John Paul II
The National Eucharistic Revival, a movement called for by all the Bishops of the United States, is a call for a revival of belief in, and reverence for, the Most Holy Eucharist.
