“The Church draws her life from the Eucharist.” (Ecclesia de Eucharista) These opening words of Pope John Paul II in Ecclesia de Eucharista stand true for the Jesus Youth movement. Wherever Jesus Youth come together, for retreats, initial encounter programmes, reach out programmes, trainings or talent ministries, the Eucharist always takes centre stage. The adoration of the Blessed Sacrament invariably becomes the high point of every programme – a source of healing and transformation in the lives of thousands of youth. Moreover, any Jesus Youth would gladly recount at least one inspiring experience about the power of the Eucharist in his/her life.
