Homily of Cardinal Justin Rigali - Exposition and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament - Eucharistic Congress, Diocese of Knoxville, September 14, 2013

March 29, 2018

The Eucharistic Congress here in Knoxville was held five years ago. Five years later on Holy Thursday we have the opportunity once again to make a wonderful expression of our faith in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. This homily is an invitation to all of us to do this, to proclaim Jesus Christ present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Holy Eucharist.
