Give Us This Day Our Daily International Bread

If you decide to visit your child's classroom, a good day to drop in would be International Food Luncheon Day: Philippine lumpia, German potato salad & red cabbage, Indonesian chicken curry, Irish soda bread, French chocolate mouse, English fish & chips (my sons contribution) and much, much more. Some days it's good to be a Dad.

It was a nice reminder to watch as each child introduced a facet of his or her personal heritage through food and a few interesting national facts. So many cultures, so much food. And one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.

Thank you God, for preparing such a bountiful table. Thank You for the lumpia, the curry, and for deep fried anything. Thank You also for the Diaz's, the Kellys, and the Hiendshaws. Thank You for the vast diversity we behold in Your human face, and the unifying singleness we share in Your one mystical Body. Amen.

And then - there was dessert: Philippine sweet rice, Scotch candied apples, Indonesian fried bananas, Mexican candy . . .
