No communion … the fast of a pandemic?

‘Give us today our daily bread’.

Familiar words from Our Lord’s prayer. Words that we may not connect with some of his final guidance when, at the last supper, at his last Passover celebration, Jesus took bread, blessed, broke and gave it to the disciples saying ‘ Take and eat, this is my body’. Jesus took their daily bread, and it became a promise and sign of his constant presence when we remember theone who gives himself for us.

I offer these thoughts as, separated as we are, Jesus brings us together in him every time, every day that we take bread, give thanks and eat in loving remembrance of him. We are connected. We are in communion.Perhaps our breakfast toast might start each day with a different relevance and thankfulness.

With blessings
