Lost in arrogance and
self-sufficiency. Defending
all I am and all
I have. Blind to the
pain of injustice and silence
I glimpse the glory of
the coming of the Lord
“Give us today our daily bread”.
We learn to touch and
see each other’s being and
pain, to see and touch our
own pain. We learn to hear,
to act and be “we”
“Give us today our daily bread”.
Letting go, we are fed on
the common loaf of longing
in the silence of solitude.
