As Catholics around the country are preparing for the National Eucharistic Revival, U.S. bishops kicked off a campaign to show Catholics the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

Leaders of the revival went to Rome to meet with Pope Francis, who shared some inspiring words for them.

The Holy Father also blessed the monstrance that will be used at the National Eucharistic Congress and encouraged the members to continue their mission. 

Organizers of the National Eucharistic Congress, a weeklong event in July of 2024, said it will have a festival atmosphere with something for everyone, including Masses, art installations, and concerts.
