The brothers at SSJE (the Society of St. John the Evangelist in Cambridge, MA) are currently offering a series of homilies on The Lord’s Prayer. In his comments on “Give us this day our daily bread,” Br. Liam invites us to consider what ‘bread’ each of us needs to respond to God's particular call to us. Br. Liam’s daily bread is 'an encounter with beauty.’ The ‘daily bread’ I need, to answer God’s call to intercessory prayer for individuals and situations, is solitude. What bread do you need?
