Catholic Word of the Day: EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS, 08-26-13 ^ | 08-26-13 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Posted on 08/26/2013 7:37:48 AM PDT by Salvation

Featured Term (selected at random):


An international gathering of the faithful to foster devotion to the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. The practice originated with a local gathering arranged through the efforts of Monsignor Gaston de Ségur, which met at Lille in France in 1881. In time the congresses developed to their present international character. The congress of 1908, which met in London, was the first occasion on which a papal legate had entered England since the Reformation. Two international Eucharistic congresses were held in the United States, the twenty-eighth at Chicago in 1926 and the forty-first at Philadelphia in 1976.
