Yes, dear sons and daughters, honour and celebrate him who was so perfect an adorer of the Blessed Sacrament; after his example, always place at the centre of your thoughts, of your affections, of the undertakings of your zeal this incomparable source of all grace: the mystery of faith, which hides under the veils the Author Himself of grace, Jesus, the Incarnate Word.
From the homily by Saint John XXIII, Pope
at the canonization of Saint Peter Julian Eymard
December 9, 1962
Bishops, priests and lay people from different parts of the world have written to the Holy See earnestly requesting that the liturgical celebration of the priest, Saint Peter Julian Eymard, be inserted in the General Roman Calendar. In view of this, His Holiness Pope John Paul II has decreed that the optional memoria would be included in the Roman Calendar and may be celebrated by all on 2nd August. This new memoria is to be inserted in all Ordos for the celebration of Mass and of the Liturgy of the Hours. Mention should be also made in all liturgical books that will be published under the direction of the Episcopal Conferences.
From the Office of the Congregation for the Sacraments and Divine Worship, on the 9th day of December, 1995.
