MANILA — In response to the call of New Evangelization, your favorite Catholic program is preparing a series on the forthcoming 51st International Eucharistic Congress (IEC).
The Know The Truth (KTT) team has decided recently to come out with IEC specials in an effort to remind Filipino Catholic viewers of the centrality of the Eucharist in the life of the Church, and to ready them intellectually and spiritually for the big event to take place in Cebu next year.
For the first two episodes, KTT has invited no less than Fr. Jess Malit of the Congregation of the Most Blessed Sacrament, to expound on the Sacrament of the Eucharist, specifically on the so-called “Bread of Life” discourse in John 6, and why the Church considers it the “source and summit of the Christian life” (Lumen gentium, 11).
The Blessed Sacrament Father also presents a host of arguments from the Bible which prove that attacks on the Eucharist are groundless.
On a more personal note, Fr. Jess will share his firsthand experiences of previous IECs he attended in Mexico and in Canada.
Themed “Christ in you, hope of glory” (Col. 1:27), the 51st is scheduled on Jan. 24-31, 2016 in Cebu City.
