Carl Anderson, the Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus, gave an incredible address at the 50th International Eucharistic Congress in Ireland last week. As a husband and a father, he spoke on the theme of Exploring and Celebrating the Communion of Marriage and Family.
“It is easy to see that the Eucharist is central to the life of a priest,” Anderson said. “But it is no less central and vital to the life of a lay person. Without the Eucharist, our communion with others is cut off from what sanctifies it, for ‘it is through the Eucharist that Christ guides our lives and builds our communities of love, understanding and mercy.’”
