Q: Mr. Augustine, What Am I When I Pray?
A: "You are God's beggar. I mean, we are all God's beggars when we pray. We stand in front of the great householder's gate. In fact we go so far as to prostrate ourselves, we whine and implore, wanting to receive something, and that something is God himself. What does the beggar ask from you? Bread. And you , what do you ask from God, if not Christ, who says, 'I am the living bread who came down from heaven?'"
