Daily Bread

From Today's Office
It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Psalm 100:3b
Meditation
It is not only the physical sustenance that, in your providence, you give us for the necessities of life, but it is also the nourishment of truth that you give daily to our souls. That kind of bread nourishes us into eternal life.

—François Fénelon, Meditations on the Heart of God
Prayer of the Day for Eucharist

Lord Jesus, you were not put on the defensive by questions designed to ensnare you, and you answered with wisdom and often in ways that were unexpected. Help me to resist answering hard questions quickly and in my own strength, but to seek and rely on your Holy Spirit for how to respond. Amen.
