FOR WHOM ?
This Congress is for anybody who would like to have a new experience of Divine Mercy through the grace of the Eucharist. The majority of the participants will come from France and Europe. The Congress will be animated by speakers and witnesses: lay people, priests and religious, all committed to a ministry of mercy, centred upon Eucharistic Adoration. The figure of Mary-Magdalene (sinner-> contemplative/adorer-> apostle) will be evoked in the talks and the times of prayer. We have the intention to publish and distribute the talks.

FOR ADORING PARISHES
This congress is especially for adoring parishes. The adorers can come to form their spirits and deepen their approach to adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. There will be a time reserved for coordinators of adoring parishes. But the congress also welcomes the faithful who want to discover what is the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and how to live this form of prayer.
St. Peter Julian Eymard wrote in the nineteenth century: "I have often reflected on the remedies for this universal indifference that seizes in a frightening manner so many Catholics, and I find only one: the Eucharist, love of the Eucharistic Jesus. The loss of faith comes from the loss of love. Now we must set to work, saving the souls by the divine Eucharist, and wake up France and Europe numb in a sleep of indifference because they do not know the gift of God: Jesus the Eucharistic Emmanuel. It is the torch of love that must be worn in faithful souls who believe they are pious, and are not because they have not established their centre and their life in Jesus in the holy Tabernacle.
Under the patronage of Bishop Dominique Rey, bishop of the diocese of Fréjus-Toulon, this ecclesial event will be organized by the "Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist" (Click here).
