.- During the daily press briefing at the 5th General Conference of he Latin American Bishops’ Council, the archbishop of Quebec, Cardinal Marc Ouellet, revealed details about the next International Eucharist Congress, which will take place June 15-22, 2008, in Quebec.

During the conference, the Cardinal said the Holy Father has insisted the congress be “truly international, that there be participation from the different continents.  We are working hard with contacts and invitations so that the people can stay free-of-charge with families.”  He also said efforts are being made to raise funds to help the poor in Africa and Latin America as part of the outreach of the Eucharistic congress.

In statements to CNA, the cardinal explained that the theme of the 2008 congress would be, “The Eucharist, Gift of God for the Life of the World,” and that the event would have a missionary dimension by “insisting on the fostering of peace, international solidarity, contact between the north and the south.”

“The Eucharist is precisely the memorial of the paschal mystery, of the Lord’s sacrifice to the end and the victory of love over sin, hatred and death,” the cardinal said, noting that when one receives Communion one enters into that victory.
