QUEBEC CITY (Zenit.org).- The Church in Quebec is enthusiastically preparing the 49th International Eucharistic Congress to be held from June 15th to June 22nd.

The volume affirms that the Eucharist is related to social justice. "There is certainly a great interest in celebrating the presence of the Lord and being nourished by the Holy Eucharist," the cardinal said, "and also in seeing that between social justice, peace, and the Eucharistic mystery, there are very tight bonds."

The faithful will have the opportunity to rediscover the central place of the Blessed Sacrament in Christian life, said the apostolic nuncio to Canada about the upcoming Eucharistic Congress in Quebec.

Archbishop Luigi Ventura, the apostolic nuncio to Canada, said this in his traditional address at the opening of the annual general meeting of the Canadian Catholic Bishops' Conference in Cornwall on Monday.

Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the archbishop of Quebec, addressed the more than 80 bishops for the last time before the International Eucharistic Congress next month. He outlined the preparations for the event that is expected to involve close to 15,000 participants.

Also in his opening remarks about the congress, Archbishop Ventura said: "The celebrations that surround the 400th anniversary of Quebec City, and consequently the arrival of the Catholic faith to this part of the world, enrich themselves through openness to the spiritual dimension.

"The faithful will thus have another opportunity to rediscover the central place of the Eucharist in Christian life and the fundamental role that it has played and can play again in the building of a better society."
