Writer's Wednesday -- Benedict XVI

Just had to give you another nugget from Benedict's book...

Before there can be bread, the seed--the grain of wheat--first has to be placed in the earth, it has to "die", and then the new ear can grow out of this death. Earthly bread can become the bearer of Christ's presence because it contains in itself the mystery of the Passion, because it unites in itself death and resurrection.

-----Benedict XVI, Jesus of Nazareth, 2007.
