Cardinal Bo and Cardinal Sarah among speakers at Budapest International Eucharistic Congress

The International Eucharistic Congress, a celebration of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist with participants from all over the world, will be held in Budapest from September 5 to September 12.

More than 25 cardinals and bishops will attend the International Eucharistic Congress in Budapest, which will include speakers such as Cardinal Charles Maung Bo and Cardinal Robert Sarah.

Bo is the archbishop of Yangon, Burma’s former capital city, and Sarah was the prefect of the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship from 2014 until his retirement in February of this year.

The congress’ morning prayers, catechesis, testimony, and seminars will be led by cardinals from five continents, according to the event’s schedule.

The list of participants in the eight-day event includes Iraqi Cardinal Louis Raphael Sako, Indian Cardinal Oswald Gracias, Nigerian Cardinal John Onaiyekan, Venezuelan Cardinal Baltazar Enrique Porras Cardozo, Canadian Cardinal Gérald Lacroix, Luxembourg’s Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, and Syrian Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch Youssef Absi.

Mary Healy, a professor of Scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, and Barbara Heil, an American mother of eight who converted to Catholicism after working as an evangelical missionary in 55 countries, are among the lay Catholic speakers on the programme.

The 52nd International Eucharistic Congress was supposed to take place in 2020, but it was pushed back to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pope Francis has confirmed that he would travel to Hungary to attend the closing Mass on September 12 in Budapest’s Heroes’ Square.

Cardinal Péter Erd, archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest and congress host, told CNA in February that he hoped the gathering would be a “great symbol of hope” in the midst of the pandemic. “Many parishes have learned how to stream liturgies online, but they have also discovered that nothing can replace the human presence,” Erd said.

“That is how the Congress’s slogan becomes a reality and takes on new meaning: ‘All my springs are in you’ (Psalm 87:7).” The most recent congress took place in Cebu, Philippines, in 2016. The congress drew 12,000 people, but millions more attended related Masses. The Eucharistic Congress was last held in Hungary in 1938.

Pope Francis named the Archdiocese of Quito in Ecuador to host the 2024 International Eucharistic Congress, the Vatican declared last month. The Ecuadorian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Manuel Meja, said on Twitter on April 21 that he expects the Pope to visit Ecuador in 2024 for the 53rd International Eucharistic Congress.
