"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
Great misery is the proud man, but greater mercy is the humble God.
(De cat. rud. IV, 8)
Man himself, so much admired, is a great mystery.
(Sermo 126, 4)
When did the Lord want to show himself? At the breaking of the bread. We can be sure of that: by sharing the bread, we recognize the Lord.
