National Eucharistic Revival
The Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau is joining (arch)dioceses across the country in a three-year nationwide Eucharistic Revival.
Let us strive to renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
The Bishops of the United States are calling for a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. They believe that God wants to see a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and sent out in mission “for the life of the world.”
These three years will culminate in the first National Eucharistic Congress in the United States in almost fifty years. It is anticipated that nearly a hundred thousand Catholics will join together in Indianapolis for a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage toward the “source and summit” of our Catholic faith.
Read the 2021 USCCB document on the Eucharist, the doctrinal source text for the Eucharistic Revival, “The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Life of the Church.”
Additional resources for the Eucharistic Revival may be found at the National Eucharistic Revival Website, www.eucharisticrevival.org.
EUCHARISTIC PRAYER COMPANION
A prayer guide for the Lenten Season and Sacred Triduum is now available and free to download from the USCCB’s Committee on the National Eucharistic Revival. These 30-minute meditations can be done in front of the Blessed Sacrament, in your home, and even in a coffee shop.
May each of us experience Jesus’ desire to draw closer to us.
Diocesan Traveling Exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracles
Blessed Carlo Acutis created an exhibition of over 100 Eucharistic miracles from around the world. This exhibit can be viewed HERE. A dozen miracles were specially chosen from Blessed Carlo Acutis’ exhibition to create our diocesan traveling exhibit. The exhibit will travel to all seven deaneries of the diocese during the National Eucharistic Revival.
If your parish or school would like to display the exhibit, please use this ONLINE FORM to make your request.
Faith formation resources for the Exhibit are now available here at this Google Drive link. It includes promotion ads, sample prayers of the faithful, family catechesis ideas, high school lesson plans, Eucharistic Holy Hours for all ages, and much more.
