Continuing his series of Wednesday addresses on mercy, Pope Francis devoted his August 17 general audience to the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.
The Pope added:
[INDENT]Through our partaking of the Eucharist, we not only receive spiritual nourishment, but, conformed ever more fully to the Lord, we become signs of his merciful presence to those around us. May all of us, as members of Christ’s body, seek to bring to our families and communities, and especially to those most in need, the nourishment of God’s closeness, mercy and love.
Regarding the amazing reference to “the nourishment of God’s closeness, mercy and love.” The power of Eucharistic Adoration came to mind.
