Cardinal Pell addresses Mexico Eucharist symposium

Sydney Cardinal George Pell spoke on Wednesday at a symposium in the Mexican city of Guadalajara that is taking place prior to next week's 48th International Eucharistic Congress.

The three-day international theological-pastoral symposium on the Eucharist is focusing on Pope John Paul II's encyclical Ecclesia de Eucharistia.

Wednesday's presentations addressed the Sense of Faith in the Eucharist on five continents. Aside from Cardinal Pell, speakers included Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson, archbishop of Cape Coast, Ghana, Cardinal Bernard Law, emeritus of Boston, Franciscan Cardinal Carlos Amigo Vallejo, archbishop of Seville, Spain, Archbishop Carmelo D.F. Morelos of Zamboanga, Philippines.

Yesterday's program included talks on the Eucharist as Mystery of Faith, while today's program considers "Decorum of the Eucharistic Celebration" and "Mary, Eucharistic Woman".

The symposium is being presided over by Cardinals Juan Sandoval Iniguez, archbishop of Guadalajara, and Jozef Tomko, president of the Pontifical Committee for International Eucharistic Congresses and the Holy Father's special envoy to the events in Mexico.
