August 20, 2012. (Romereports.com) The Pope prayed the Angelus from the balcony of his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, by inviting pilgrims to rediscover the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
“Let us rediscover the beauty of the Sacrament of Eucharist, which shows us all the humility and holiness of God, who becomes small.”
Benedict XVI went on to explain that the message Jesus conveyed wasn't always welcomed by people.
“It is clear that these words were not well received. Jesus knew this and he says it intentionally. In fact this is a critical time, a radical change in His public life.”
He ended the Angelus, by reminding pilgrims that the power of prayer and the Virgin Mary can bring Christians closer to Jesus.
