In Bishop Hick’s January Monthly Column he wrote about the USCCB’s establishment of the Eucharistic Revival in the United States that will begin on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, June 19 and extend through 2025 (the last year being a year of Mission). In his column Bishop wrote: “We should continuously strive to grow in our knowledge of the Eucharist and our faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ. However, as we learn more, our hearts will hopefully grow with a deep love for God and the Eucharist. Once this love becomes strong, the love of God through the Eucharist will become the central focus and priority of our lives.” This growth into a deeper love for God and the Eucharist is what the Eucharistic Revival is all about.

Receive Communion often, very often . . . there you have the sole remedy, if you want to be cured. Jesus has not put this attraction in your heart for nothing.
—Saint Thérèse of Lisieux
If we but paused for a moment to consider attentively what takes place in this sacrament, I am sure that the thought of Christ’s love for us would transform the coldness of our hearts into a fire of love and gratitude.
—Saint Angela of Foligno
