Two things necessary

“I now realize there are two things especially necessary to me . . . food and light. You have therefore given me in my weakness your sacred body to be the refreshment of my soul and my body, and have set your word as a lamp to my feet. Without these two I cannot rightly live; for the Word of God is the light of my soul, and your Supper is the bread of my life.” (Thomas A’Kempis in The Imitation of Christ)
