Bread is perishable

To hunger and thirst for righteousness is to recognize our neighbour’s hunger as well as our own. It is essential for us to keep in mind that a loaf of bread has no purpose in itself. Bread is meant to be shared – blessed, broken and given to the imperfect and undeserving – so that we, the imperfect and undeserving, may be transformed. Bread is to be offered in Jesus’ name to neighbours and even to enemies, for it is intended for all the world.
