eucharistic prayer

POPE’S MESSAGE | Eucharistic prayer teaches us to make our whole life a Eucharist

Pope Francis blessed a child at an audience with Italian nurses March 3 in Paul VI hall at the Vatican.

VATICAN CITY — Mass isn't a paid arrangement for salvation but rather the commemoration of Christ's sacrifice of his life, given freely to all, Pope Francis said.

Christians can make a silent prayer during Mass or donate money to offer a Mass for a loved one who is in need or passed away, but should never feel obliged to make a payment, the pope said at his weekly general audience at the Vatican March 7.

DEAR FATHER | Remembering deceased at Mass just as important as remembering them at the grave

Bury my body wherever you will; let not care of it cause you any concern. One thing only I ask you, that you remember me at the altar of the Lord wherever you may be." — St. Monica, as recorded in the "Confessions" of St. Augustine
