To always be close to Jesus, that’s my life plan.
-Blessed Carlo Acutis
I found myself to be a priest in a town that didn’t love Jesus, and I would have to love him in the name of everybody in that town.
– Saint Manuel González García
A relic of Blessed Carlo Acutis and a relic of Saint Manuel González García will be at the Edwin Cardinal O’Brien Pastoral Center, during the second week of Advent, December 7-11, 2022.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) was presented with both relics to share with dioceses during the National Eucharistic Revival.
The relic of Saint Manuel González García, 25 Feb 1877 – 4 Jan 1940, helps all to reflect upon the need for Eucharistic Revival and the recognition of the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
Blessed Carlo Acutis, 3 May 1991 – 12 Oct 2006 – nicknamed the cyber-apostle of the Eucharist, was an Italian teenager who used technology to spread devotion to the Eucharist before his death at age fifteen from leukemia in 2006. He offered his sufferings for the Church and for the Holy Father, and Pope Francis has called him a role model for young people.
