Madrid -- Closing the Year of the Eucharist

The Pontifical Basilica of St. Michael organized a number of ceremonies in October to honor the Most Blessed Sacrament and to pray for the fruitfulness of the Synod of Bishops then being held in Rome.

Julio Lozano, the Basilica’s organist, played a number of motets during the solemn exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. The organ of the Basilica of St. Michael, following its restoration, is considered one of the best baroque organs in Spain.

During the solemn exposition on Sundays, Eucharistic meditations were preached before the Blessed Sacrament by Auxiliary Bishop Cesar A. Franco Martínez of Madrid, Father Pedro Alvarez de Toledo, Vicar of Opus Dei for the Madrid-West delegation, and Fr. Alfonso Carrasco, Professor at the St. Damasus School of Theology in Madrid and Rector of the Major Seminary of the Archdiocese of Madrid.

The closing of the Eucharistic Year included the projection of a video showing scenes from the catechesis of St. Josemaría Escrivá on the Eucharist.
