He also emphasized that this peace is Christ's gift to us – a different peace from that offered by the world, it helps the Church to grow in unity and peace "according to his will."
Next in the Mass, the priest breaks the host, which has already been consecrated and transformed into the body and blood of Jesus Christ, and places it in the chalice. This is accompanied by our prayer to the "Lamb of God."
"In the Eucharistic Bread, broken for the life of the world, the prayerful assembly recognizes the true Lamb of God, that is Christ the Redeemer, and begs him: 'Have mercy on us… give us peace,'" the Pope said.
"'Have mercy on us,' 'give us peace,'" he continued, "are invocations that, from the prayer of the Our Father to the breaking of the Bread, help us to dispose our mind to participate in the Eucharistic banquet, a source of communion with God and with our brothers."
He concluded by asking everyone to pray the Our Father together, each "in their own language."
In his speech, the Pope did not mention the line of the Our Father which says in English, "lead us not into temptation."
In an interview he gave in December 2017, Francis said that he believes the Italian translation of this line, which says, "non ci indurre in tentazione," is incorrect, because God does not actively lead us into temptation.
He also praised in the interview a new translation of this line by the French bishops' conference, which says "et ne nous laisse pas entrer in tentation" – "let us not enter into temptation." It replaces the previous translation "ne nous soumets pas à la tentation" – "do not submit us to temptation."
