A meal as a rite

"A meal is still a rite - the last 'natural sacrament' of family and friendship, of life that is more than 'eating' and 'drinking.' To eat is still something more than to maintain bodily functions. People may not understand what that 'something more' is, but they nonetheless desire to celebrate it...they are still hungry and thirsty for sacramental life." For the Life of the World - Alexander Schmemann
