In the Eucharist, the Pope continued, we are “freed from egocentrism.” Through the sacrament, the faithful are united to their neighbors: “Those who recognize Jesus in the consecrated Host recognize Him in their suffering brothers and sisters, in the hungry and thirsty, in the stranger, the naked, the sick, the imprisoned; they are attentive to everyone and take concrete steps to help those in need.”

Agreed.

Oh, and no reason to have a picture of Clement of Rome, except that I wanted it. I mean, his first two books were awesome.
