Macao (Agenzia Fides) - After the great success of the International Exhibition on Eucharistic Miracles, conceived and realized by Blessed Carlo Acutis and held in Macau from June 17th to July 31st, the organizers have decided to extend the exhibition: the exhibition will therefore reopen tomorrow, August 9th, and can be visited until September 30th. The guided tours will also be resumed. This decision by the Macao Catholic Culture Association, which organizes the event, was also made possible by the easing of anti-Covid restrictions. Visitors are nevertheless asked to continue to take all necessary measures, such as wearing masks and taking their temperature at the entrance. But the conditions did not affect the success of the event.
Macao is the first Asian stop of this international exhibition on the Eucharistic Miracles officially recognized by the Church, conceived and realized by the young Blessed Carlo Acutis. The Macao Catholic community is particularly interested in exploring the relationships and influences between Catholic culture and contemporary science, and is therefore also concerned with realities that human science cannot prove and that are beyond the reach of scientific research, thanks to the contribution of Blessed Carlo Acutis.
At the official opening ceremony on June 17th, Msgr. Stephen Lee, Bishop of Macao and President of the Macao Catholic Culture Association, together with some representatives of the local authorities, paid tribute to this precious moment, presenting in this context the exhibition and the life of Blessed Carlo Acutis so that the Chinese believers, especially the young, can come to know and appreciate this important figure.
A platform dedicated to the exhibition is accessible via the website www.macaucca.org, with a great deal of information and contributions, particularly on the life of Blessed Carlo Acutis. In this way, the Catholic and non-Catholic public can learn more about Eucharistic miracles, but also the history of faith and the testimony of the young Italian. (NZ) (Agenzia Fides, 8/8/2022)
