Synod on the Eucharist

Zenit has English translations of the Pope's Angelus address on the Synod of the Eucharist, as well as his homily for the bishops at the opening mass (links in Italian through the Vatican site). From the Angelus:
The Eucharist, in fact, is the motor of the whole of the Church's evangelizing action, as the heart is in the human body.
From the homily, which cannot be done justice by an excerpt, but nonetheless:

"I have created you in my image and likeness," he tells us. "I myself am love and you are my image in the measure that the splendor of love shines in you, in the measure in which you respond to me with love." God waits for us. He wants us to love Him: Should not such a call touch our hearts? Precisely in this hour, in which we celebrate the Eucharist, in which we open the Synod on the Eucharist, He comes to meet us, He comes to meet me. Will he find a response? Or will it be with us as it was with the vineyard, of which God says in Isaiah: "he looked for it to yield grapes but it yielded wild grapes."
