Pontifical Committee on IEC Approves Basic Text for 51st IEC

The Pontifical Committee on International Eucharistic Congresses, headed by His Excellency, Archbishop Piero Marini, has approved the Basic Text for the 51st IEC.  Based on the theme “Christ in you, our Hope of Glory,” the text focuses on the Eucharist as the source and goal of mission.  Asia being a vast land for the sowing of the Word of God, the Congress develops the themes of hope and mission.   Jesus in the Eucharist offers himself as food for the people who hunger for God.  In turn, those who receive him open their hearts and hands to share with others the hope they have received in Christ.  (see Basic Text)
