“So they said to him, ‘What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? What can you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ So Jesus said to them, ‘Amen, amen, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.’”
Jesus is the “resident catechist” here.
What meaning does “bread” hold for you as you pray, “give us our daily bread,” in the Our Father?
Allow that meaning to give life to your day.
Heritage word—“There is no spiritual progress when we want something different from God and His good pleasure.”
