I was praying this morning about Holy Thurday, about what it means to me that Jesus took bread and broke it, and shared it with his friends. He said this is my body. He poured the wine and said this is my blood. These words have rippled through time and woven us together in a common narrative. I thought about the ways that sharing of food across cultures and religious traditions has great significance. Meals become sacred acts. Breaking bread and pouring wine are sacraments because they immerse us in the nourishment of all that is holy and remind us that any divisions between us are illusions. They lift the veil for a time and we live as if we truly believed this.
