Daily Bread

From Today's Office
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why are you so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Psalm 43:5
It is good to humbly realize that we are all of us poor, needy, and parched with thirst, just as it is a great relief to discover that he provides all we need and more. Even his burden is unlike any burden we have known—“For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light”—for it becomes the light of the world. —Scott Cairns, God with Us, Paraclete Press
Prayer of the Day

Ambrose was like the faithful manager in the Gospel reading, Lord, to whom you gave the responsibility of caring for your people in Milan. You have entrusted to me, Lord, the “food” of your words. May you feed the souls of your people through me as I am willing to share your truth with others today. Amen.
