Quote: The First National Eucharistic Congress of the Philippines was held from 11 to 16 December 1929. The sessions officially began on 12 December. The second day of the sessions, 13 December, was appointed as the día de los estudiantes or the Students’ Day. The day began at 6.30, with double Masses one offered in the cathedral by the Most Illustrious and Most Reverend James McCloskey, bishop of Jaro, for male students; and another at the church of Saint Dominic by the Most Illustrious and Most Reverend Sofronio Hacbang, bishop of Calbayog, for the female students. Both Masses were designated for the general Communion of the students.

The day was especially dedicated to the youth. Here we will follow the Young Women’s Session. At 7.30, after Mass, the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament commenced. The vigil was divided amongst different groups. [The vigil would end at 6.00 in the evening, with the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at 5.30.] At 9.00, after the start of the Exposition, each section proceeded to their respective venues. The Young Women’s Section proceeded to the Assumption Convent at 405 Herrán. The prelate in the session was the Most Illustrious and Most Reverend Constanz Jürgens, bishop of Tuguegarao. Presiding the open forum was Padre Francisco Muñoz, with Ms Dolores Paterno, president of the archdiocesan committee of the JCWL (Junior Catholic Women’s League), as chairwoman.

The first topic discussed was: Catholic Action—the restoration of human society in Christ and in the Eucharist. Below we reproduce the speech delivered by the first speaker, Ms María Vaca of the JCWL of Saint Scholastica’s College.

Quote: The First National Eucharistic Congress of the Philippines was held from 11 to 16 December 1929. The sessions officially began on 12 December. The first day of the sessions, 12 December, was appointed as the día de las mujeres or the Women’s Day. The day began at 6.30, with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered in the cathedral by the Most Illustrious and Most Reverend Santiago Sancho, bishop of Nueva Segovia, for the archconfraternities, confraternities, and pious associations of the archdiocese. Singing at Mass were students of the Sisters of Charity.

The day was especially dedicated to women. However, we will still follow here, in continuity with what we have shared here, the youth with the Young Men’s Session. At 7.30, after Mass, the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament commenced. The vigil was divided amongst different groups. [The vigil would end at 6.00 in the evening, with the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at 5.30.] At 9.00, after the start of the Exposition, each section proceeded to their respective venues. The Young Men’s Section proceeded to the Saint Rita’s Hall along Taft Avenue. The presiding prelate in the session was the Most Illustrious and Most Reverend James McClosky, bishop of Jaro. In charge of the open forum was Padre José Pamintuan of Tanay, Rizal, with Mr Teodoro Evangelista of the University of the Philippines as chairman.

The first topic discussed was: The Holy Eucharist and the Filipino Youth. Below we reproduce the speech delivered by the first speaker, Mr Amando Ocampo of De La Salle College (now De La Salle University).
