CWN Editor's Note: Continuing his weekly series of catechetical talks on the Mass, Pope Francis spoke on March 21 about the reception of Communion. Saying that the Eucharist is a remedy for sin and a path to salvation, he cited the words of St. Ambrose: “I who sin always, am always in need of medicine.” The Pope suggested that after receiving Communion, the faithful “are helped by silence: silent prayer.”
