The presence of Jesus in every tabernacle points us to how we can serve our suffering brothers and sisters who share in Christ’s passion today, Pope Francis told American priests this week.
In an audience with the National Association of Hispanic Priests on Nov. 16, Pope Francis shared his advice for living a Eucharistic prayer life ahead of the upcoming National Eucharistic Congress to be held in Indianapolis in July 2024.
“Do not leave those who suffer alone. Do not leave the Lord of the tabernacle alone. Convince yourselves that you cannot do anything with your hands if you do not do it with your knees,” Pope Francis told the priests.
Drawing from the life and testimony of both St. Manuel González and Blessed Carlo Acutis, two patrons of the National Eucharistic Revival in the U.S., Pope Francis underlined the importance of prayer in Eucharistic adoration.
