Mirae caritatis

Mirae caritatis is an encyclical of Pope Leo XIII on the Holy Eucharist given on 28 May 1902. The Pope explores several aspects of eucharistic theology, citing the sacrament as the sacrifice of the Mass, the bond of charity, the mystery of faith and the source of life. The expression mirror of charity itself was popularized by Ailred of Rievaulx during the Middle Ages. Leo XIII's encyclical was cited by Popes Pius XII and Paul VI in their own teaching documents, respectively Mediator Dei and Mysterium fidei.
