Blessed Are the Hungry:
Meditations on the Lord's Supper
The Lord's Supper is the world in miniature; it has cosmic significance. Within it we find clues to the meaning of all creation and all history, to the nature of God and the nature of man, to the mystery of the world, which is Christ. It is not confined to the first day, for its power fills seven. Though the table stands at the center, its effects stretch out to the four corners of the earth.
By all appearances, the sheep are hungry for the Bread of Life--given in Word and Sacrament. Peter Leithart has given us fresh reason "to taste and see that the Lord is good."
