The Word of God teaches me to be bread for those who are hungry for kindness,  encouragement, compassion, and love.

The Word of God teaches me to eat the bread of forgiveness, reconciliation, peace, and nonviolence.

The Word of God teaches me that the Lord is the bread that gives me the nourishment to love my neighbor as myself, welcome strangers, feed the hungry, and visit the sick.

[Jesus said:] “It is written in the prophets: They shall all be taught by God.” John 6:45a

    Beautiful reflection! Since we come from the mouth of God, we are the Word of God in the world. We cannot keep silent in the midst of evil, conflict, war, violence, racism, and indifference. We were created to be and speak God’s Word of love, compassion, peace, forgiveness and reconciliation.
