(Peter Pinedo. CNA).

Pope Francis praised the ongoing National Eucharistic Revival in the United States, saying in a letter published Tuesday that he wished to extend a special blessing to all those attending the National Eucharistic Congress later this month. “The faithful who approach the heavenly banquet, strengthened by the protection of heaven, are able to work more vigorously and diligently in sustaining their daily duties,” the pope wrote. “For this reason, we were very happy to hear the news about the National Eucharistic Congress in the United States of America.”
