This lovely hymn, Panis Angelicus (“Bread of Angels”), sung by Andrea Bocelli, came into my head as I was grocery shopping this morning. It’s one of the hymns we play when setting up our Christmas tree.
Who is the bread of angels? Jesus Christ: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” (John 6:51)
