“What the world needs is God’s love; it needs to encounter Christ and to believe in him. The Eucharist is thus the source and summit not only of the Church's life, but also of her mission.”- Sacramentum Caritatis, #84
Over the next three years, every Catholic diocese, parish, school, apostolate, and family is invited to be a part of renewing the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
For some time now, a major concern of the bishops has been the declining belief in and lack of understanding of the Eucharist among the Catholic faithful. The document “The Mystery of the Eucharist in the Life of the Church,” which was approved by the full body of bishops in November 2021, serves as a foundation for the Eucharistic Revival.
The U.S. Bishops felt that the Church in the United States, particularly right now, needs (1) healing, (2) unity, (3) formation, and (4) sending. The Eucharist, as the “source and summit of the Christian life”, especially in the context of the Mass, is uniquely capable of being an “efficacious sign of grace” (CCC 1130) to all those ends.
During each phase of the three-year process, we will engage partnerships with ministries, apostolates, and catechetical organizations to animate events at the local level and provide formation and resources for all ages and stages of faith.
This logo was commissioned by the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland to recognize the convergence of three major events: our participation in Pope Francis’ Synod on Synodality, our partaking in the National Eucharistic Revival, and the joyful celebration of our 175th anniversary as a diocese.
