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.

Lord Jesus Christ, I thank you for Your Love and for having me as a member of Your Family, please help me to always see all people as my brothers and sisters.
Jesus, I love you. Help me to be able to bring your love to the people I come in contact with each and every day. Amen.
Thank you for centering my day, no matter how busy I think I am. God is with me and these retreat moments help me remember that.
