“God’s greatest gift to us is His Son, Jesus Christ. How many ways does Christ come to us? It’s more than you think! Catechism 1373 tells us the most sublime and special way is the Eucharist, the ‘source and summit of our faith’. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishop’s has launched a national revival on the Eucharist”.
