OUR DAILY BREAD
 
1. What is the relation between the gift of fortitude and this petition of 
the Lord's Prayer?
 
2. Notice how we ask only for spiritual things in the first three petitions 
of this prayer, and we ask for our temporal necessities in the fourth 
petition.
 
3. "Give us this day our daily bread" includes our prayer to avoid five 
sins associated with the temporal needs of man. What are these sins, and 
what are the means of avoiding them?
 
4. What does St. Thomas say about excessive solicitude for the things of 
this world? What well-known sermon of Our Lord does he recall? (See Matt., 
vi. 24-34.)
 
5. "Bread" here means all our temporal wants and our spiritual needs as 
well. Explain how this refers particularly to the Holy Eucharist.
 
6. Does the "Word of God" also have a share in this petition? How?
