Then as they sat at meat, as He brake the bread (that represents His broken body), there came the knowledge that they spoke with the Master. Hence an experience which may draw this very near to the entity in the present: How oft in thine experience has there come to thy inmost knowledge the REAL, REAL purpose of individuals as ye broke bread with them! Not that this then becomes as an omen. It is a REALITY; for ye broke bread with LIFE itself! And as it represents the staff of life, as it represents His body, how MUCH, how oft, how great is the influence in thine experience of those ye break bread with!
