The big news of today is that this evening, for the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ (or Solemnity of Corpus Christi), Pope Francis celebrated Mass and gave a homily at the Basilica of Saint John Lateran, after which he processed via Merulana, to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, where he gave a solemn Benediction with the Blessed Sacrament (full text, full video, summary video 1, summary video 2).
Also today, he sent a tweet:
Jesus gives himself to us in the Eucharist, offering himself as spiritual food that sustains our life. (link)

And that’s the Pope Francis news for the day!
