In the breaking of the bread …

One reason I look forward to this Sunday’s gospel reading every year is the opportunity it offers to hear this beautiful hymn.  It was sung by our choir at the 11:30 mass this morning.  (I’ve heard it in other settings, too — including, last year, as the communion hymn for a wedding.)

Here’s a lovely rendering of “In the Breaking of the Bread” by Kitty Cleveland.

  1. I can’t get enough of this song. I love it.! Gloria

  2. Gloria… that’s why I made this video. My friend sent me this song and I wanted a visual to go along with it so I whipped that together. I never intended for it to go online and I sure wasn’t about to post this to my page because I was in the closet about looking into Catholicism, but he liked it and posted it to his YouTube page (priests are kind of tricky about doing stuff like that). I made this video back before I became Catholic, but the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist was drawing me in a deep way and I really connected with this song.

    I’m cracking up that my video made it’s way to this blog! I’m a regular reader of this blog, but avoid the comment section as to avoid stepping in drama so I’m not known here.
