In the years gone by, Ireland has produced many missionaries. They have given the best of education to our society. They brought deep spirituality and taught the people how to love God by loving people.

The International Eucharistic Congress in Ireland will inspire all concerned to take Jesus seriously and bring back the spiritual heritage Ireland has always had. We keep praying for the great manifestation of God's love to this green land.

What Ireland is facing today is a great challenge giving hope to all for a great shining light -- the Risen Lord.

With assurance of my prayers,

Francis S. Rosario
