From November 2017 to April 2018, Pope Francis devoted many of his addresses at the Wednesday Audience to catechesis on the Mass.

They are collected here, and deserve to be better known.

In the particular they can serve as an examination of conscience, consciousness and practice as we prepare to move from the prohibition of public Mass (because of Coronavirus) into a gradual process of relaxing restrictions.

Reflections on the catechesis have been posted on the Living Eucharist blog, beginning on June 24th.

A direct link to the writings and other teachings of Pope Francis is available here.
