Bread is Dead!

The message was “Bread is Dead!” It was heard during daily mass at St. Paul Catholic Church in Colorado Springs, CO. The homily was a simple one especially since most of the congregation consisted of students from the adjacent Catholic School. Though sometimes, it is the simplest messages that are easiest to learn from.

The priest began by explaining the murderous steps bread goes through to be created…they pulverize the wheat… they pump it with foreign ingredients…they knead it as dough …  then they punch it down and divide it…and finally,  just for good measure, they bake it at hundreds of degrees. Surely by the time it is considered bread, it is truly dead… beaten to a pulp. Of course, the priest who exclaimed the “Bread is Dead!” wasn’t merely speaking of food. He was alluding to his point that the true bread of everlasting life is in Jesus Christ through the Eucharist. However, the way in which he explained, its a lesson that can also be applied to your everyday meal consumption as well.
