Apr 15 - “Many Gifts” © artwork by Julie Lonneman.

Lord Christ, we ask you to spread our tables with your mercy. And may you bless with your gentle hands the good thing you have given us. We know that whatever we have comes from you. Thus whatever we eat, we should give thanks to you. And having received from your hands, let us give with equally generous hands to those who are poor, breaking bread and sharing our bread with them. For you have told us that whatever we give to the poor we give to you.
—Alcuin of York
