Food you eat, things you plant, water you spill out. These allow the image to settle in more deeply.

The more common the images, the more they will be reinforced in our daily lives.  The more they’re reinforced in our daily lives, the greater the meaninng they will have in our marriages.

For 3 weeks afterwards, do the action and think of the way you love one another. There you are, with your love for one another sealed into the sharing of bread, for the rest of your life.
