I want to copy the first paragraph of the daily reflection in Give Us This Day; it is by Lynn Elizabeth Meadow, OSB and worth reading:
"God's grace comes to us like a gift of warm bread on a cool night. But the true gift is not the bread. The gift is the One who bears the bread, loving us with the tenderness of a mother. this gift of a loving gaze nourishes us and expands our hearts so that we, too, become bread. We become the gift God uses to offer love to others. We receive bread, and become bread. We receive the gaze, and extend it to others."
