IEC: for Card Bo, attacks on the family are worse than the nuclear bomb
The Burmese bishop, who acted as papal legate at the congress in Cebu, led the final Mass of the event. In his homily, he came down hard on the attacks on the family, the basic unit of society. He also praised the Philippines, a light for evangelisation and the mission of the third millennium. The Eucharist remains the source and summit of a life commitment.

For Fr D'Ambra, the Eucharist is a spiritual force that leads us to the encounter with Muslims
The PIME missionary spoke today at the symposium introducing the 51st International Eucharistic Congress in Cebu. “The point of comparison is Emmaus, where two disciples recognised the Lord as he broke the bread, and from that, they found strength to move at night without fear.” In addition, “The challenge, in my opinion, is to try to communicate to others what the Eucharist is, even though Muslims have a hard time understanding that."
