Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

One of our Bread for the World members found this meditation on a recent trip to England. It’s a wonderful connection for our work!


Be gentle

when you touch bread.

Let it not lie

uncared for, unwanted.

So often

bread is taken for granted.

There is such beauty in bread;

beauty of sun and soil,

beauty of patient toil.

Wind and sun have caressed it.

Christ often blessed it.

Be gentle

when you touch bread.

(…discovered next to a loaf of bread, tucked in an alcove at Cartmel Priory, England)
