“Give us today our daily bread.”
Our Gospel Reflection this evening is taken from John 15. Perhaps this week you will choose to reflect on the image of the Vine. Jesus is speaking, and He is illustrating the deep need that His followers have to draw their life from Him, as the branch does from the vine. His point is to mind us toward our dependence on Him. He uses a powerful image.
In our meditation this evening, we could reflect on the question begged by Jesus’ words: where is my life rooted? We might move to orient our lives in ways that are appropriate for people who pray: Our Father, give us today our daily bread.
