UK    CARDINAL HUME'S FINAL PLEA FOR DEVOTION TO EUCHARIST
The Church urgently needs to renew its devotion to the Eucharist and to restore a sense of dignity and reverence to the celebration of Mass, warns the late UK Cardinal Basil Hume in his final book published yesterday.
    The Cardinal, who died in June, calls for a return to the practice of the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and asks Catholics to renew their understanding of the Mass as participation in Christ's sacrifice on calvary.
    Shortly before his death Cardinal Hume contributed to a major new catechetical tool for teaching children about the meaning of the Mass, Exploring the Mass, which expounds the traditional theology of the Eucharist as sacrifice and teaches that Christ is present in Holy Communion and the Blessed Sacrament.
