2016 Eucharistic Congress Diocese Of Charlotte

September 9 & 10

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I am delighted to welcome you to the Eucharistic Congress. During this Jubilee Year of Mercy we joyfully gather as the faithful of the Diocese of Charlotte to celebrate our faith and our love for the Eucharistic Lord. The Eucharist brings us together as one body in Christ. The theme of our congress this year echoes the Jubilee Year of Mercy: “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful” (Luke 6:36). These are words spoken by Jesus, in which He tells His disciples to practice mercy toward others. The practice of mercy demonstrates that we are children of the heavenly Father, who is merciful to all. It is in the Holy Eucharist that Jesus demonstrates His mercy in an exceptional way. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass makes present the sacrifice of the cross, the event through which Jesus in His great mercy saved us. In Holy Communion we are nourished on the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our merciful Lord Jesus Christ. He brings us the mercy of our heavenly Father. Jesus is the incarnation of the Father’s mercy. The love of Christ which we celebrate in the Eucharist must move us to works of mercy toward our brothers and sisters. Jesus mercifully feeds us and nourishes us, and we in turn must mercifully nourish others through our works of mercy. In a spirit of joy and gratitude let us celebrate the Eucharistic Congress. The congress is a great blessing for our diocese. May the congress help us to grow in holiness, and assist us in reflecting the mercy of Almighty God in our daily lives. Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Peter J. Jugis Bishop of Charlotte

Adoration offers a source of inspiration and peace for the thousands of Catholics who attend the annual two-day event. Adoration will begin at 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9, starting with a procession from Hall B of the Charlotte Convention Center up to St. Peter Church, 507 S. Tryon St. Participants are welcome to carry electric candles. Adoration will then be held overnight at St. Peter Church from 9:30 p.m. to 8 a.m. Saturday. Starting at 9 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 10, the faithful of the Diocese of Charlotte are invited to join in the Eucharistic Procession through uptown Charlotte to the Charlotte Convention Center, where the Eucharistic Congress will be held. Line up along the procession route and join in with your parish once its banner passes. The Eucharistic Procession will culminate inside Hall A of the convention center, where a Holy Hour will be celebrated starting at 10:15 a.m. Saturday. Following the Holy Hour, silent Eucharistic Adoration will be held in the Chapel in Hall B, adjacent to the Confession Area. Members of the Knights of Columbus will stand at the entrance to the Chapel, where everyone is invited to come in, kneel and pray for as long as they like. Adoration will conclude at 4 p.m., and the celebration of Holy Mass will begin at 4:15 p.m. with Bishop Peter J. Jugis as the main celebrant. W. TR A

Holy Hour Hall A – Saturday, Sept. 10, 10:15 a.m. Gospel of St. John 6:48-58 “I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died; this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us (his) flesh to eat?” Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. “Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me. “This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.”

Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Juan 6:48-58 “Yo soy el pan de la vida. Sus padres comieron el maná en el desierto y sin embargo, murieron. Este es el pan que ha bajado del cielo para que, quien lo coma, no muera. Yo soy el pan vivo que ha bajado del cielo; el que coma de este pan vivirá para siempre. Y el pan que yo les voy a dar es mi carne para que el mundo tenga vida.” Los judíos se pusieron a discutir entre sí: “¿Cómo puede éste darnos a comer su carne?” Jesús les dijo: “Yo les aseguro: Si no comen la carne del Hijo del hombre y no beben su sangre, no podrán tener vida en ustedes. El que come mi carne y bebe mi sangre, tiene vida eterna y yo lo resucitaré el último día. Mi carne es verdadera comida y mi sangre es verdadera bebida. El que come mi carne y bebe mi sangre, permanece en mí y yo en él. Como el Padre, que me ha enviado, posee la vida y yo vivo por él, así también el que me come vivirá por mí. Este es el pan que ha bajado del cielo; no es como el maná que comieron sus padres, pues murieron. El que come de este pan vivirá para siempre”.

Holy Mass Hall A – 4:15 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10 Entrance hymns I “Alleluia! sing to Jesus!” Alleluia! sing to Jesus! His the scepter, His the throne. Alleluia! His the triumph, His the victory alone. Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion thunder like a mighty flood. Jesus out of every nation has redeemed us by His blood.

Alleluia! bread of angels, Thou on earth our food, our stay; Alleluia! here the sinful flee to Thee from day to day: Intercessor, Friend of sinners, Earth’s Redeemer, plead for me, Where the songs of all the sinless sweep across the crystal sea.

Alleluia! not as orphans are we left in sorrow now; Alleluia! He is near us, faith believes, nor questions how; Though the cloud from sight received Him when the forty days were o’er Shall our hearts forget His promise, “I am with you evermore”?

Alleluia! King eternal, Thee the Lord of lords we own; Alleluia! born of Mary, Earth Thy footstool, Heav’n Thy throne: Thou within the veil hast entered, robed in flesh our great High Priest; Thou on earth both priest and victim in the Eucharistic feast.

II “Bendito, Bendito” Refrain: Bendito, bendito, bendito sea Dios, los ángeles cantan y alaban a Dios. los ángeles cantan y alaban a Dios.

A tus plantas llego confuso de dolor, de todas mis culpas imploro tu perdón. de todas mis culpas imploro tu perdón. (Refrain)

Jesús de mi alma, te doy mi corazón, y en cambio te pido me des tu bendición. y en cambio te pido me des tu bendición. (Refrain)

Yo creo, Dios mío, que estás en el altar, oculto en la Hostia te vengo a adorar. oculto en la Hostia te vengo a adorar. (Refrain)

Adoro en la hostia el Cuerpo de Jesús, su sangre preciosa que dio por mí en la cruz. su sangre preciosa que dio por mí en la cruz. (Refrain)

Oh cielo y tierra, decid a una voz, bendito por siempre, bendito sea Dios. bendito por siempre, bendito sea Dios. (Refrain)

III “O God Beyond All Praising” O God beyond all praising, we worship you today and sing the love amazing that songs cannot repay; for we can only wonder at every gift you send, at blessings without number and mercies without end: we lift our hearts before you and wait upon your word, we honor and adore you, our great and mighty Lord.

Then hear, O gracious Saviour, Accept the love we bring, That we who know your favour May serve you as our King; And whether our tomorrows be filled with good or ill, We’ll triumph through our sorrows And rise to bless you still: To marvel at your beauty And glory in your ways, And make a joyful duty Our sacrifice of praise.

The flow’r of earthly splendor in time must surely die, Its fragile bloom surrender to you, the Lord most high; But hidden from all nature the eternal seed is sown Though small in mortal stature, to Heaven’s garden grown: For Christ the Man from Heaven from death has set us free, And we through him are given the final victory. Introit: The Lord opened the doors of heaven, and rained down manna for them to eat,

He gave them bread from heaven and man ate the bread of angels. Alleluia.





First Reading A reading from the Book of Exodus (Ex 16:2-4, 12-15) The whole Israelite community grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The Israelites said to them, “Would that we had died at the Lord’s hand in the land of Egypt, as we sat by our fleshpots and ate our fill of bread! But you had to lead us into this desert to make the whole community die of famine!” Then the Lord said to Moses, “I will now rain down bread from heaven for you. Each day the people are to go out and gather their daily portion; thus will I test them, to see whether they follow my instructions or not. “I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them: In the evening twilight you shall eat flesh, and in the morning you shall have your fill of bread, so that you may know that I, the Lord, am your God.” In the evening quail came up and covered the camp. In the morning a dew lay all about the camp, and when the dew evaporated, there on the surface of the desert were fine flakes like hoarfrost on the ground. On seeing it, the Israelites asked one another, “What is this?” for they did not know what it was. But Moses told them, “This is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat.” The word of the Lord. R: Thanks be to God.

Responsorial Psalm (Ps 78) R. The Lord gave them bread from heaven.

Second Reading A reading from the First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians (1 Cor 11:23-26) Brothers and sisters: I have received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night He was handed over, took bread and, after He had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my Body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my Blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until He comes. The word of the Lord. R: Thanks be to God. R: Alleluia. “I am the living bread that came down from heaven, says the Lord; whoever eats this bread will live forever.”

Gospel Reading A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke (Luke 24:13-16, 28-35) That very day, the first day of the week, two of Jesus’ disciples were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus, and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred. And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them, but their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him. As they approached the village to which they were going, He gave the impression that He was going on farther. But they urged Him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.” So He went in to stay with them. And it happened that, while He was with them at table, He took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them. With that their eyes were opened and they recognized Him, but He vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?” So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them who were saying, “The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!” Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how He was made known to them in the breaking of the bread. The Gospel of the Lord. R: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.


Offertory Antiphon: This is my body which is given up for you, this is the cup of the new covenant in my blood, says the Lord. Each time that you partake thereof, do it in memory of me.

Offertory hymn: “Jesus, My Lord, My God, My All” Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all! How can I love Thee as I ought? And how revere this wondrous gift, So far surpassing hope or thought?

Had I but Mary’s sinless heart With which to love Thee, dearest King, Oh, with what ever fervent praise, Thy goodness, Jesus, would I sing! (Refrain)

Refrain: Sweet Sacrament, we Thee adore! Oh, make us love Thee more and more. Oh, make us love Thee more and more.

Thy Body, Soul and Godhead, all! O mystery of love divine! I cannot compass all I have, For all Thou hast and art is mine! (Refrain)

Offertory Motet: “There’s A Wideness In God’s Mercy” (Maurice Bevan)

Communion hymns I “Porque Nos Invitas” Porque nos invitas, venimos a tu altar, oímos tu palabra, comemos de tu pan; oímos tu palabra, comemos de tu pan.

Tu palabra es vida y es luz del corazón, tu pan es sacramento del más sublime amor; tu pan es sacramento del más sublime amor.

Hijos de la Iglesia, fraterna comunión, tu muerte celebramos, y tu resurrección; tu muerte celebramos, y tu resurrección.

El altar es mesa y Calvario redentor. Te ofreces a ti mismo por nuestra salvación. Te ofreces a ti mismo por nuestra salvación.

II “O Jesus We Adore Thee” (“O Sacrament Most Holy” ) O Jesus, we adore thee Who in thy love divine, Conceal thy mighty Godhead In forms of bread and wine.

O Jesus, we adore thee, Our Savior and our King, And with the saints and angels A Humble homage bring. (Refrain)

Refrain: O Sacrament most holy, O Sacrament divine, All praise and all thanksgiving Be every moment thine!

O Jesus, we adore thee, Come, live in us, we pray, That all our thoughts and actions Be thine alone today. (Refrain)

O Jesus, we adore thee, Our Victim and our Priest, Whose precious blood and body Become our sacred feast. (Refrain)

O come, all you who labor In sorrow and in pain; Come, eat this bread from heaven, Your peace and strength regain. (Refrain)

Closing hymns I “Salve Regina”

II “Holy God, We Praise Thy Name” Holy God, we praise thy name; Lord of all, we bow before thee; all on earth thy scepter claim; all in heaven above adore thee. Infinite thy vast domain; everlasting is thy reign.

Hark the glad celestial hymn angel choirs above are raising; cherubim and seraphim, in unceasing chorus praising, fill the heavens with sweet accord: Holy, holy, holy Lord.


Holy Father, Holy Son, Holy Spirit: three we name thee, though in essence only one; undivided God we claim thee, and adoring bend the knee while we own the mystery.

Misa de Vigilia Sala A – Sábado, 10 de septiembre, 4:15 p.m. Cantos de Entrada: p. 12 I “Alleluia! sing to Jesus!” II “Bendito, Bendito” III “O God Beyond All Praising”

Señor ten Piedad: p. 12 Gloria: p. 13 Primera Lectura Lectura del libro del Éxodo (Éxodo 16:2-4, 12-15) En aquellos días, toda la comunidad de los hijos de Israel murmuró contra Moisés y Aarón en el desierto, diciendo: “Ojalá hubiéramos muerto a manos del Señor en Egipto, cuando nos sentábamos junto a las ollas de carne y comíamos pan hasta saciarnos. Ustedes nos han traído a este desierto para matar de hambre a toda esta multitud”. Entonces dijo el Señor a Moisés: “Voy a hacer que llueva pan del cielo. Que el pueblo salga a recoger cada día lo que necesita, pues quiero probar si guarda mi ley o no. He oído las murmuraciones de los hijos de Israel. Diles de parte mía: ‘Por la tarde comerán carne y por la mañana se hartarán de pan, para que sepan que yo soy el Señor, su Dios’”. Aquella misma tarde, una bandada de codornices cubrió el campamento. A la mañana siguiente había en torno a él una capa de rocío que, al evaporarse, dejó el suelo cubierto con una especie de polvo blanco semejante a la escarcha. Al ver eso, los israelitas se dijeron unos a otros: “¿Qué es esto?”, pues no sabían lo que era. Moisés les dijo: “Este es el pan que el Señor les da por alimento”. Palabra de Dios. R: Te alabamos Señor.

Salmo Responsorial (Salmo 78) R: El Señor les dio pan del cielo. Cuanto hemos escuchado y conocemos del poder del Señor y de su gloria, cuanto nos han narrado nuestros padres, nuestros hijos lo oirán de nuestra boca.

Así el hombre comió pan de los ángeles; Dios le dio de comer en abundancia y luego los condujo hasta la tierra y el monte que su diestra conquistara.

R. El Señor les dio pan del cielo.

R. El Señor les dio pan del cielo.

A las nubes mandó desde lo alto que abrieran las compuertas de lo cielos; hizo llover maná sobre su pueblo, trigo celeste envio como alimento. R. El Señor les dio pan del cielo.

Segunda Lectura Lectura de la primera carta del apóstol san Pablo a los corintios (Corintios 11:23-26) Hermanos: Yo recibí del Señor lo mismo que les he trasmitido: que el Señor Jesús, la noche en que iba a ser entregado, tomó pan en sus manos, y pronunciando la acción de gracias, lo partió y dijo: “Esto es mi cuerpo, que se entrega por ustedes. Hagan esto en memoria mía”. Lo mismo hizo con el cáliz después de cenar, diciendo: “Este cáliz es la nueva alianza que se sella con mi sangre. Hagan esto en memoria mía siempre que beban de él”. Por eso, cada vez que ustedes comen de este pan y beben de este cáliz, proclaman la muerte del Señor, hasta que vuelva. Palabra de Dios. R: Te alabamos Señor. 6

Evangelio Lectura del santo Evangelio según san Lucas (Lc 24:13-16,28-35) El mismo día de la resurrección, iban dos de los discípulos hacia un pueblo llamado Emaús, situado a unos once kilómetros de Jerusalén, y comentaban todo lo que había sucedido. Mientras conversaban y discutían, Jesús se les acercó y comenzó a caminar con ellos; pero los ojos de los dos discípulos estaban velados y no lo reconocieron. Ya cerca del pueblo a donde se dirigían, él hizo como que iba más lejos; pero ellos le insistieron, diciendo: “Quédate con nosotros, por que ya es tarde y pronto va a oscurecer”. Y entró para quedarse con ellos. Cuando estaban a la mesa, tomó un pan, pronunció la bendición, lo partió y se lo dio. Entonces se les abrieron los ojos y lo reconocieron, pero él se les desapareció. Y ellos se decían el uno al otro: “¡Con razón nuestro corazón ardía, mientras nos hablaba por el camino y nos explicaba las Escrituras!” Se levantaron inmediatamente y regresaron a Jerusalén, donde encontraron reunidos a los Once con sus compañeros, los cuales les dijeron: “De veras ha resucitado el Señor y se le ha aparecido a Simón”. Entonces ellos contaron lo que les había pasado por el camino y cómo lo habían reconocido al partir el pan. Palabra del Señor. R: Gloria a Ti, Señor Jesús.

El tema de éste año para la hora Eucarística será: “La Importancia del Perdón” reflexionando en el perdón que Dios nos da y el verdadero perdón que nosotros debemos dar a nuestros hermanos. 5

Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en Cristo, ¡Es para mí un gran placer en darles la bienvenida al Congreso Eucarístico! Durante este Año Jubilar de la Misericordia, nos reunimos con mucha alegría a medida que los fieles de la Diócesis de Charlotte nos reunimos para celebrar nuestra fe y nuestro amor por Nuestro Señor Sacramentado. La Eucaristía nos une como un solo cuerpo en Cristo. El tema del congreso de este año hace eco del Año Jubilar de la Misericordia: “Sean misericordiosos, como su Padre es misericordioso,” (Lucas 6:36). Están son las palabras que Jesús dice, y en las cuales Él dice a sus discípulos que practiquen y sean misericordiosos con los demás. La práctica de la misericordia demuestra que somos hijos e hijas de Nuestro Padre Celestial, el cual es misericordioso con todos. Es en la Sagrada Eucaristía que Jesús demuestra su misericordia de una manera excepcional. En el Sacrificio de la Santa Misa, se hace presente el sacrificio de la Cruz, el evento por medio del cual Jesús en su Infinita misericordia nos redimió. En la Santa Comunión, Dios nos alimenta con el Cuerpo, Sangre, Alma y Divinidad de Nuestro misericordioso Señor Jesucristo. Jesús nos trae la misericordia de Nuestro Padre celestial. Jesús es la encarnación de la Misericordia del Padre. El amor de Cristo que celebramos en la Eucaristía debe exhortarnos a las obras de caridad para con nuestro prójimo. Jesús en su misericordia nos alimenta y nos nutre, y nosotros entonces a cambio debemos alimentar a los demás por medio de nuestras obras de caridad. En un espíritu de alegría y gratitud, celebremos entonces este Congreso Eucarístico. El congreso es una gran bendición para nuestra diócesis. Que este congreso nos ayude a que crezcamos en santidad, y que nos ayude también a que reflejemos la misericordia de Dios Todopoderoso en nuestra vida diaria. Sinceramente en Cristo,

Excelentísimo Obispo Peter J. Jugis Obispo de Charlotte
