Sound bites from "Mane nobiscum Domine"

Whoever learns to say ‘thanks’ in the manner of the crucified Christ can be a martyr, but never a petty dictator.

We must not deceive ourselves: it is from our reciprocal love and, in particular, from the concern we have for those in need that we will be recognized as true disciples of Christ [Jn 13:35; Mt 25:31-46]. This is the criterion on the basis of which the authenticity of our Eucharistic celebrations will be confirmed.
