Silent Devotee Before the Eucharist

| | Comments (1)

Speaking of Il Papa and the Eucharist, Sandro Magister's latest is on Pope Benedict XVI's first six months.

ROMA, October 20, 2005 – Benedict XVI’s first book as pope, which collects his speeches in Cologne and will soon be sold all over the world, bears an audacious title: “God’s Revolution.�”

But the real audacity is found where he writes that the big bang of the divine revolution – “the ultimate end of which is the transformation of the world�” – is in the fragile, white, consecrated host, the sacrament of the real presence of Jesus, who is God and man.

The image of Benedict XVI kneeling silently before the Eucharist has become the key image of this pontificate.

The whole piece is up to Magister's usual standards.

The Holy Father told us at WYD that the only true revolutionaries are the saints and that the only true revolutions are founded on the love of Christ in the Eucharist. I couldn't agree with him more.
