“Sir, give us this bread always.”  This is a striking line in the Gospel reading for today. It speaks of hunger, a deep hunger for things that nourish us spiritually. As members of a liturgical community and a sacramental faith, we recognize that physical objects and moments can communicate something of the divine.
