The Eucharistic Congress...

The Ninth National Eucharistic Congress was held in St. Paul and Minneapolis in 1941. As a kid I heard stories from different people who were there. They said that during the outdoor Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament there was suddenly a torrential downpour and that everybody stayed kneeling where they stood. The many thousands of participants each wore this nice armband as a mark of their participation and a pledge of their pride of membership in the Catholic Church.
