CARDINAL MARINI ADDRESSES EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS IN BUDAPEST

 

“We need to learn that the future of our faith is not determined by how we celebrate the liturgy but by how we can use that liturgy in our life,” Cardinal Piero Marini said in a mass celebrated on the second day of the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress now under way in Budapest. Marini is the president of the Pontifical Committee for International Eucharistic Congresses. “It is a mission for Christians to be apostles of Scripture, but the disciples must not preach Jesus in an abstract sense only,” the cardinal said. “They must make a testimony through a personal example.” Showing that example takes “effort, discomfort, and suffering” but “we are happy to pay that price because it contributes to completing God’s beatific scheme”, he said.
