Today we offer the text of Pope Francis’ General Audience of Nov. 22, 2017, where he continues his catechesis on the Mass.  Consider his reflections on the concept of “memorial” as we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King:  That this King whom we rightfully honor is the same King who hung upon the cross, broken and bloody, and is the same King who gives himself to us totally and completely under forms of broken bread and wine, in the Eucharist.

“In the celebration of the Eucharist we relive the mystery of the cross; not only do we remember but we carry out the memorial of the redeeming Sacrifice, in which the Son of God loses Himself completely to receive Himself again from the Father and thus find us again, who were lost, together with all creatures. Every time we take part in Holy Mass, the Love of the crucified and risen Christ is communicated to us as food and drink, so that we can follow Him on the way every day, in the concrete service of brothers.
“May Mary Most Holy, who followed Jesus to Calvary, accompany us also and help us not to be afraid of the cross, but nailed with Jesus; not a cross without Jesus, but a cross with Jesus, namely, the cross to suffer for love of God and of brothers, because this suffering, by the grace of Christ, is fruitful resurrection.” — Pope Francis: Angelus address, 2017-09-03
