During his Sunday Angelus on the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, Pope Francis turned to the day’s reading, in which Saint Paul describes the Eucharistic celebration. “He highlights two effects of the shared chalice and the broken bread: the mystical effect and the communal effect”, said the Pope.

Pope Francis explained that Jesus is present in the sacrament of the Eucharist “to be our nourishment, to be assimilated and to become in us that renewing force that gives energy and the desire to set out again after every pause or fall”.
