Summary of the presentation of H. Em. Card. Marc OUELLET, P.S.S., Archbishop of Québec

The Year of the Eucharist is a launching ramp for a long term Eucharistic movement that allows the evangelizing of culture beginning with the family, the domestic church. Today’s anthropological crisis is manifested in the break up of family and social relationships. Only the Eucharist, the source of Trinitarian communion, can respond to this cultural and social crisis. The assiduous practice of Sunday Mass in the family is the proven and always contemporary way to evangelize culture and society. The preparation of the International Eucharistic Congress in Quebec in 2008 promotes this, in the light of the teachings by John Paul II, who left us in heritage this conviction.
