I cannot get up to give you anything.’ I tell you, if he does not get up to give the visitor the loaves because of their friendship, he will get up to give him whatever he needs because of his persistence.”

Heritage word—“Mary, teach us to be women and men of the Eucharist who dare to break the bread of our lives that our world may vibrate with a spirituality of communion, reconciliation, and a sense of solidarity that places those on the margins of our society at the center of our concern so that all may have Bread, all may have fullness of life.
(Sr. Mary Sujita, 9th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
