I haven't heard or watched it yet, but have heard from a friend in Rome that the Holy Father's extemporaneous comments at Mass this evening were on point. 

For Spanish speakers, my friend Fr. Jesus sent me his elegant reflection on the priesthood of all believers and longing for the Eucharist. He was preaching to a group of missionary families, and the homily begins after a few vocal prayers. 

Just because it's beautiful: the story of a high school football player who was paralyzed from the neck down and the courage of his extraordinary family.
