Taipei (Fides Service) - Mane Nobiscum Domine is the theme of the annual formation course promoted by the Chinese Regional Bishops’ Conference in Taiwan, in response to a call made by Pope John Paul II with regard to the Year of the Eucharist. According to Christian Life Weekly, weekly bulletin of Taipei diocese, the course will be held 25 - 29 April at the house of the Missionaries of Divine Providence in Taipei. It is organised by the Bishops’ Commission for the Clergy and the speakers, experts on the Eucharist from Taiwan and Hong Kong, will reflect on various aspects of the liturgy and liturgical music. To deepen knowledge and awareness about the Eucharist among the faithful, the priests will be offered a pastoral guide on how to help the faithful celebrate the Eucharist with more intensity and practice Eucharistic Adoration more frequently. According to Christian Life Weekly, 40 after Vatican II, this is the richest and most varied event of study and reflection on the Eucharist ever organised in Taiwan.
