Cardinal Raymond Burke will dedicate the JPII Eucharistic Center this Sunday, Dec 8th at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, AL, home to Mother Angelica of EWTN which will broadcast the event worldwide starting at 12 noon.
From the Shrine website:
This is a small little preview of the much-asked-about John Paul II Eucharistic Center here at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Our Lady of the Angels Monastery. To Catholics and believers of all faiths alike, the reason for the Shrine, while prominent, remains an inexhaustible mystery. At the center and heart of the chapel here is Christ, truly present in the Eucharist. The JPII center is a ‘small’ yet significant and innovative tribute to Jesus’ unfathomable gift to us – Himself in the Eucharist. Here, visitors to the Shrine can step into recreations of a Jewish home at Passover (a foreshadowing of the Eucharist) and a constructed synagogue like the one where Christ gave the discourse in John chapter 6.
On display are immense paintings depicting the price Christ paid to give us this memorial of His passion and death. Multi Media presentations including stunning reenactments of historical Eucharistic miracles as well as dynamic question and answer segments at various booths. Not least of all are tributes to Saints and martyrs who gave the ultimate confession of faith in Christ’s Real Presence – their own life. Your prayers and support for this great work are truly appreciated! Adoro te devote!
