The Holy Father lately addressed the Plenary Meeting of the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments.
The address is on the Vatican website.

thought you’d be interested. Reports all fail to quote a couple of passages of the latest address of the Holy Father to CDWDS, which sound rather interesting in these days’ context:
[…]Therefore, I welcomed with pleasure your proposal that the Plenary assembly dedicated itself to the subject of eucharistic adoration, with the confidence that a renewed collegial reflection on this practice could contribute to clarify – within the limits of the competence of the Dicastery – the liturgical and pastoral means with which the Church of our time can promote the faith in the Real Presence of the Lord and to guarantee the full dimension of adoration in the celebration of the Holy Mass. I underlined this aspect in the Apostolic Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis where I[…], to stress the importance of the intrinsic relation between the celebration of the Eucharist and adoration (n. 66), cited the teaching of St. Augustine "Nemo autem illam carnem manducat, nisi prius adoraverit; peccemus non adorando" (Enarrationes in Psalmos, 98, 9: CCL 39, 1385).

This echoed what my Predecessor, Pope John Paul II, had already said about the deviations which at times tampered with (literally inquinato = polluted) the post-conciliar liturgical renewal, revealing "an extremely reductive understanding of the Eucharistic mystery" (Ecclesia de Eucharistia, n. 10).[…]
The Holy Father continues with a succinct but clear reaffirmation of the authentic teachings of the Council and the Popes and concludes:
[..]The doctrine of Transubstantiation of the bread and the wine and of Real Presence are truth of faith already evident in Sacred Scripture and then confirmed by the Fathers of the Church. In this regard, Pope Paul VI reminded that "the Catholic Church has not only always taught, but also lived the faith in the presence of the body and the blood of Christ in the Eucharist, adoring such a great Sacrament always with the cult of latria, which is due only to God"[…]
