The Bread of Life

My Dear Child,


We all like to eat, so I’ll tell you something about a very basic food, bread. This is made with a mixture of wheat flour, water, salt, and yeast. These ingredients are kneaded together and then baked in an oven. It is prepared in different shapes and sizes; its flavor, colour and texture may vary. The ovens where bread is baked have changed over the years. The Bible tells us how people made bread. Remember the child who shared five loaves and two fish and Jesus multiplied it to feed thousands of people? Bread is pleasant to the palate and good for our digestion, but we should eat the one that is much healthier. The Bible mentions bread several times and reminds us that “Jesus is our bread of life.” John 6:35


With much love,
