Pope Francis
Corpus Christi 2014


The Father says to us: “I have fed you with manna which you did not know.” Let us restore our memory and learn to recognize the false victuals that delude and corrupt, because they are the fruit of selfishness, self-sufficiency and sin: poisoned foods. Soon, in the procession, we will follow Jesus, truly present in the Eucharist. The Host is our manna, through which the Lord gives Himself to us. And we turn to Him with trust: Jesus, defend us from the temptations of the worldly food that enslaves us; purify our memory, so that we may not be imprisoned by selfish and worldly selectivity, but become instead the living memory of Your presence throughout the history of Your people, a memory that becomes a “memorial” of your gesture of redeeming love.

— Pope Francis, Corpus Christi 2014
