Here are links and quotes from the Pope's homilies today:
Today's Chrism Mass:
The Asia News story is here. ZENIT has the whole homily in English here. The Vatican website has only the Italian so far, and translations into other languages (including English) will be posted later here. Here is an excerpt from ZENIT's translation:
To be a priest means to become a friend of Jesus Christ, and this ever more with the whole of our existence. The world has need of God -- not of any god, but of the God of Jesus Christ, of the God who became flesh and blood, who has loved us to the point of dying for us, who rose and has created in himself a space for man. This God must live in us and we in him. This is our priestly call: Only in this way can our action of priests bear fruits.
The Mass of the Lord's Supper:
The Mass of the Lord's Supper at the St. John Lateran Basilica in Rome is discussed by Asia News here. The Vatican has the Italian and will have an English translation soon here. Here is an excerpt from the Asia News article:
"The Lord wipes away our filth with the purifying force of his goodness. Washing one another’s feet means above all forgiving one another other tirelessly, always ready to start together anew even when it seems pointless. It means purifying one another by helping each other and accepting that others help us; [it means] purifying one another by giving each other the hallow strength of God’s word and introducing ourselves to the Sacrament of Divine Love."
Updated April 15: A ZENIT transcript of the homily from the Mass of the Lord's Supper is now available online here.
