Segment 3 – National Eucharistic Revival/Pilgrimage/Congress
“Throughout the National Eucharistic Revival, local communities have been gathering tinder in response to God’s invitation for renewal, calling on the Holy Spirit to bring the flame. ‍ In keeping with this vision, the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage is accompanying Jesus from city to city, lighting hearts on fire along the way. Soon, all these flames will blaze together at the National Eucharistic Congress in July.”  Maria Benes joins Sherry to discuss.


Maria Benes is the project lead for the Marian and Serra Routes of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage with Modern Catholic Pilgrim. Modern Catholic Pilgrim is the nonprofit responsible for the logistical planning of the NEP.

You’ll follow along, step-by-step, the methodical process the Catholic Church follows to determine who is in Heaven, and the miracles which revealed that Carlo was already there.”
