Baptists, Eucharist, and History 24 – St. Cyprian on Our Daily Bread

This excerpt comes from St. Cyprian’s Treatise on the Lord’s Prayer. As ever, I do recommend reading the entire work, but I’ll focus on the part that directly relates to the topic of this series. As the prayer goes forward, we ask and say, “Give us this day our daily bread.” And this may be […]
