Pope Francis said Sunday that the Eucharist exemplifies how God's love can accomplish great things with very little.
"Whatever we have can bear fruit if we give it away – that is what Jesus wants to tell us – and it does not matter whether it is great or small. The Lord does great things with our littleness," Pope Francis said June 23.
"God's omnipotence is lowly, made up of love alone. And love can accomplish great things with little. The Eucharist teaches us this: for there we find God himself contained in a piece of bread," the pope said in his homily for the Solemnity of Corpus Christi.
Pope Francis said that the Eucharist is "the antidote" to the mindset that says, "Sorry, that is not my problem," or "I have no time, I can't help you, it's none of my business."
