From a homily by Pope Francis: “The Eucharist communicates the Lord’s love for us: a love so great that it nourishes us with Himself; a freely given love, always available to every person who hungers and needs to regenerate his own strength, To live the experience of faith means to allow oneself to be nourished by the Lord and to build one’s own existence not with material goods but with the reality that does not perish: the gifts of God, His Word and His Body.” Every time we go to Mass, we receive Jesus – truly the Bread of Life — that nourishes us to face whatever the world sets before us.
