Pope Francis on the Eucharist

It is not creativity, however pastoral it may be, or meetings or planning that ensures our fruitfulness, even if these are greatly helpful. But what ensures our fruitfulness is our being faithful to Jesus, who says insistently: “Abide in me and I in you” (John 15:4). And we know well what that means: to contemplate him, to worship him, to embrace him, in our daily encounter with him in the Eucharist, in our life of prayer, in our moments of adoration; it means to recognize him present and to embrace him in those most in need. “Being with” Christ does not mean isolating ourselves from others. Rather, it is a “being with” in order to go forth and encounter others.


Pope Francis

Pope Francis, author of The Church of Mercy, is the first Jesuit Pope, the first pope from the Americas, and his papacy is defined by his emphasis on mercy, service, and humility.

while becoming more and more able to see us all as one, all members of God's family, what is lacking is to turn the joy of the Eucharist into fruitful work that lasts. While giving out joy we can always do more, there is so much suffering still.
Father, Son and Holy Ghost please guide me clearly in what you have planned for me. Thank you.
Lord Jesus Christ, please give me the ability to express the forgiveness I have in my heart.
