Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

“If that faith is not lived in its true form, in the depth it requires, the Eucharist loses the meaning it’s meant to have, so it’s left aside very easily.”

From the beginning of his pontificate, Benedict XVI dedicated numerous interventions so as to have the Eucharist be at the center of Christian life. Cardinal Cañizares is reminding people that the love of God is felt in Mass.

“Communion with God leads us to communion and unity with all of humanity, which is the reconciliation we are offered to truly have a reconciled world that lives in peace.”

To help appreciate the Eucharist the Congregation for the Divine Worship has prepared ‘Compendium eucharisticum,’ the first book that includes the main documents related to the Eucharist.

The volume gathers Catholic doctrine on the Eucharist, texts, prayers and chants to help priests, religious and laypeople grow deeper in the Eucharist.

“We attend Holy Mass and immediately it begins without any preparation or we end the Mass and immediately leave without that moment of reflection, silence or deep thought of what we have lived there in that moment.”

The presentation of this volume reminds people that the Church builds on the Eucharist and it’s an essential part of living a coherent Christian life. That’s why the Church is asking that communion be had at least once a year.

“A Church has life if it has the Eucharist at its center. If it loses the true sense, if that community does not have all aspects of the Eucharist present, it will begin to languish and it will not offer anything that the world needs.”

That’s why Cardinal Antonio Cañizares warns that the Eucharist cannot become an activity that’s done once a week because it’s something that lies at the center of the Christian faith. He hopes this book will help millions of Catholics in growing closer to this sacrament.
