Pope Benedict XVI: Renew Faith in Christ's Real Eucharistic Presence

"With the knowledge of being inadequate because of sin, but needful of nourishing ourselves with the love that the Lord offers us in the Eucharistic sacrament, let us renew...our faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We must not take this faith for granted!'

"Stay with us Jesus,
make a gift of yourself
and give us the bread that nourishes us for eternal life!
Free this world from the poison of evil, violence and hatred that pollute consciences,
purify it with the power of your merciful love".

"And you, Mary,
who were the woman "of the Eucharist' throughout your life,
help us to walk united towards the heavenly goal,
nourished by the Body and Blood of Christ,
the eternal Bread of life and medicine of divine immortality".

~ Pope Benedict XVI, Homily on Solemnity of Corpus Christ, 6/11/09 ~

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
