For the Life of the World

I came across this quote from Alexander Schmemann and his book “For the Life of the World” which resonated with me.

“Centuries of secularism have failed to transform eating into something strictly utilitarian. Food, the act of eating, is still treated with reverence. A meal is still a rite –  the last natural sacrament of family and friendship, of life that is more than “eating” or “drinking”. To eat is something more than to maintain bodily functions.”
