The preparatory Eucharistic Year with which Hungary is paving the way, devotionally, for the great International Eucharistic Congress at Budapest in 1938, had its solemn inauguration, last week, in St. Stephen's Cathedral. The joint letter from the Hierarchy was read in the presence of a crowded congregation, and after the service a mass meeting took place at which the Prince Primate, Cardinal Serdcli, presided. His Eminence was supported by many high ecclesiastical and civil dignitaries, together with the Archduke Joseph and the Archduchess Elizabeth, After speeches by the Cardinal and by the Minister of Cults and Education, the Mayor of Budapest spoke in the name of the city. As a Catholic, he said, he was particularly glad that for a time Hungary would be a world-centre of reverence and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Budapest would do everything possible for its guests from many lands during their visit for the Congress.
