On December 8th, here at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, the John Paul II Eucharistic Center will be blessed by his Eminence Raymond L. Cardinal Burke. This long-anticipated event will unveil years of dedicated work, displaying the history and beauties of the Eucharistic mystery in original art forms, interactive multimedia, and music. To use the words of St. Augustine, the astounding gift of Our Lord’s True Presence is truly the one Beauty, ever ancient, ever new! For a sneak preview visit the JPII Eucharistic Center page.
Here is the Church’s treasure, the heart of the world, the pledge of fulfillment for which each man and woman, even unconsciously yearns. A great and transcendent mystery, indeed, and one that taxes our mind’s ability to pass beyond appearances. – Blessed John Paul II
