Pope Francis: Bond btwn Eucharist/church

"Humans may be fallible but the Catholic Church as an institution remains sanctified through the Eucharist. ... As a sanctified institution, the Church always deserves defending, even if its individual members err. ....

The Eucharist is the source and at the same time the summit of all evangelization and a force that purifies and sanctifies the church ... the bond between the Eucharist and the church is one that cannot be broken."

Quote from then-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio
now Holy Father, Pope Francis
49th International Eucharistic Congress (June 2010)

Pope Francis, you have the pledge of our prayers!
