"Give us this day our daily bread."
- Matt. 6:11 (RSV)
"Ask the Father, daughters, together with the Lord, to give you your Spouse "this day" so that you will not be seen in this world without him. To temper such great happiness it's sufficient that he remain disguised in these accidents of bread and wine. This is torment enough for anyone who has no other love than him nor any other consolation. Beg him not to fail you, and to give you the dispositions to receive him worthily."
- St. Teresa of Avila, The Way of Perfection.
