Pope at Corpus Christi Mass: Eucharist heals our fragile memory
Pope Francis celebrates Mass on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, and reflects on how the Eucharist heals our memory and makes us bearers of joy.
Most importantly, he said, the celebration of the Lord’s Body and Blood heals our “orphaned memory.”
“Many people have memories marked by a lack of affection and bitter disappointments caused by those who should have given them love and instead orphaned their hearts.”
God, however, heals us by infusing our memory with a love that is greater than our pain.
“The Eucharist brings us the Father’s faithful love, which heals our sense of being orphans. It fills our hearts with the consoling love of the Holy Spirit.”
