“The Eucharist is Jesus who gives himself entirely to us. To nourish ourselves with him and abide in him through Holy Communion, if we do it with faith, transforms our life into a gift to God and to our brothers. To let ourselves be nourished by the “Bread of Life,” means to be in tune with the heart of Christ, to assimilate his choices, thoughts, and behaviors.It also means that we enter into “a dynamism of sacrificial love and become persons of peace, forgiveness, reconciliation and sharing in solidarity.”           (~ Pope Francis, August 16, 2015)
