Give us day by day our daily bread.
The prayer of Christian men must differ from the lion's roaring and the raven's crying. The end of their praying is that their bellies may be filled, but we must have as great a care for the food of our souls, wherefore we call it "panem nostrum," our bread. We do not call it "panem communem," such bread as is common to us with other creatures, but that special bread which is proper to man, who consists not only of body, but of soul and body, which must both be fed.
