Chapter Summary

It should be noted that the prayer does not ask "food for a day" or "daily food" as the amount of food that can be eaten in one day, but as the food sufficient for one day to sustain our health with the moderation of reason. Christ is the reserved bread in so far as he restores those by the glorification and sublimation of his own humanity, from which certainly the blessed have a singular joy because they see Christ's own nature offered with such clarity and brought together in the identity of the Word as if in the very midst of the Trinity. It is wheat bread on account of it restoring those to the extent possible by the plain presentation of divinity, which they happily contemplate in itself clearly and unadorned.

Keywords: Christ; daily food; humanity; wheat bread
