THOUSANDS TURN OUT FOR EUCHARISTIC PROCESSION AND BENEDICTION
Ten thousand Catholics from around the Archdiocese were present in Grant Park for a Benediction service celebrated by Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., on Friday, August 5, in celebration of “The Year of the Eucharist.” The Eucharistic celebration began with a procession led by two thousand Knights of Columbus, who processed from the Hilton Hotel where they were ending their Annual Meeting and Eucharistic Congress. Several thousand people joined the procession at Buckingham Fountain and continued into Grant Park’s Butler Field. Colorful banners representing parishes, societies, cultural groups and lay movements in the Archdiocese dotted the procession route and Butler Field.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:
One of the last gifts left to the Church by the late Pope John Paul II was his proclamation of the present Year of the Eucharist. As we all accompanied the Holy Father through the final months of his earthly life, he invited us over and over again to join him in reflecting on the theme of the year. By doing so, he called us all to focus on what is truly the center of our lives – the Body and Blood of Christ – the sacrament which fuels our hope that our intimacy with Christ in the Blessed Sacrament now will come to fulfillment in the life to come
