International Eucharistic Congress

From Father Gérald J. Croteau, the Archdiocesan delegate to the 2012 International Eucharistic Congress.

We have begun the month of June and on the 10th begin the 50th International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin, Ireland. We won’t be there in person, but by technology, either by the internet (EWTN or Salt and Light) or television, we will have front row seats. It is a moment of grace for Ireland and surely for the whole world as we enter more into the mystery of the Eucharist, a sacrament we have the privileged to live every Sundays. And this Sunday, the table of the Word serves us in the mystery of the Trinity, one God in three persons or three persons in one God. For the people of the first alliance it is impossible for them to accept. Surely it took some time for them to truly understand that there is but one God and none other. With the advent of Jesus the Christ where the final Alliance was signed in his blood, it was revealed to us the mystery of the life of God himself. God is relations and this is proper of love. God is love John tells us and Jesus is the living proof of the unity of the Father and the Son. ‘’Philippe, when you see me, you see the Father’’ answers Jesus when his disciple asks him to see the Father. One of my teachers at the seminary explained to us, in simple terms the oneness of God: ‘’The Father (he is father because he eternally has begotten a son) loves his son so much that he gives himself totally to his Son and his son gives himself totally to the Father and the gift of love is so perfect that it is called the Spirit. Simple? We have just entered the particle of the Trinity and I think that the understanding or the progression of the understanding of the mystery of love is a gift in itself. Paul tries to convince the Romans of the mystery we are invited into, the gift given by the Son through the Spirit so to become united to the Father. This is why we are baptised in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as Jesus ordered it to his apostles. Be one as Jesus and the Father are one and the maker is the Spirit. As one said; a mystery is like peeling an onion, one layer at the time. Enjoy the gift!
