The Living Summary of All God’s Love

This bread is the living summary of all God’s love for man. From Genesis to the prophets, from Exodus to the Apocalypse, everything is yearning towards this terrible mystery of God’s tragic love for man. God, who made himself present in the first covenant and yet more present in the Incarnation, becomes still more present in this mystery of the bread of life.
