I have begun to collect some of the pope's analogies (below). If you recall some of the earlier ones, let me know.

Pope Francis "isms"

To newly appointed bishops: "Don't be airport bishops" (bishops who spend too much time away from their dioceses)
To pastors: The Confessional is not a 'torture chamber'
The Sacrament of the Eucharist is not a 'magic rite'

He’s absolutely right! People have to remember this every time they go to Communion.

I don’t think a lot of them do, because they’re poorly instructed, alas. Maybe the Pope should take advantage of this moment to try to encourage better catechesis.

What is not God at anytime in the past cannot "become" God any time in the future - ever. Per the indelible attribute of God's essence. He is separate from his creation.

If the Eucharist really IS God, then it would have to have ALWAYS been God. Pretty easy theology.
