For A Eucharistic Life – The Pope Video

Jul 3, 2023 | Pope Video

Why go to Mass on Sunday?

Certainly not just to follow a ritual. As Pope Francis says, “If you are the same at the end of Mass as you were at the beginning, something is wrong.”

This is because “the Eucharist is the presence of Jesus,” who “comes and must transform you.” This is how Pope Francis begins the video with the prayer intention for July, produced by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, with the help of the Archdiocese of Detroit.

What’s more, the Pope continues, “it is a way of opening ourselves to the world as He taught us.” By going to Mass, we find the courage “to go out of ourselves, and to open ourselves to others with love.” Let us join the Pope in prayer so that “Catholics place at the center of their lives the Eucharistic Celebration.”

We pray that religious women and men, and seminarians grow in their own vocations through their human, pastoral, spiritual and community formation, leading them to be credible witnesses to the Gospel.
