Benedict XVI: From the Eucharist comes love for refugees and the poor

Pope's Angelus message today...

From >>> AsiaNews.it <<< Benedict XVI: From the Eucharist comes love for refugees and the poor:

"Whoever nourishes himself of Christ with faith at the Eucharistic celebration absorbs his lifestyle, that is a style of service geared especially towards the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people. In fact, works of charity are a criterion of the authencity of our liturgical celebration (cfr ap. letter Mane nobiscum Domine, 28). The current Year of the Eucharist helps diocesan and parish communities to boost this capacity to go against widespread poverties in our world."
