Marian Eucharistic Congress

Every two years folks in the Fargo Diocese put on this wonderful event. I am very fortunate to attend now for a second time. What is a Marian Eucharistic Congress you ask?

["The Marian Eucharistic Congress is a gathering of people who come together to reflect on the Treasure of the Catholic Church. Holy Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, prayer, talks, and teachings make up this two and a half day spirit-filled weekend. It is a time to show our love and devotion to Jesus in the Sacrament of the Blessed Eucharist, and to understand and appreciate the role His Mother, Mary, has in this Great Mystery; to promote a greater love for Jesus in the Sacrament of the Altar; and, to endeavor to make reparation for the outrages which have been committed against His Divine Presence in the Tabernacle. A powerhouse of enthusiastic speakers and musicians will charge up your "faith batteries." It is a weekend to assist us getting through troubled times, and to look beyond an often-times difficult world."]

For those of you who are interested, I'll take some photos. Some of the speakers include well known priests like Fr. Benedict Groeschel CFR (my personal favorite), Fr. Andrew Apostoli CFR and Fr. Mitch Pacwa SJ from EWTN. The always charming and charismatic Fr. Bill Halbing is back too. Yippee!

Here's a sampling of Fr. Halbing's gift:

Pray for me that I may listen to and understand our Father's Word.
