The Eucharistic Revival that sparked that nationwide pilgrimage, and the Congress happening soon, began because of a 2019 Pew Research study that caught the bishops’ attention.

It found about 69 percent, or two-thirds of U.S. Catholics, said they do not believe the bread and wine become Christ’s body and blood and that they are just symbols.

A more recent study, however, found that may not be the case. The Catholic firm, Vinea Research, says it’s actually the opposite. Their study says 69 percent of Mass-going Catholics do believe in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.
