6118. Saying, Give us bread. That this signifies an entreaty concerning the support of the spiritual life, is evident from the signification of "giving," when predicated of bread, as being to sustain; and from the signification of "bread," as being spiritual life. For by "bread" is specifically signified the good of love and of charity, but in general spiritual life, for in this case by "bread" is meant all food (as shown above, see n. 2165); and when all food in general is meant, spiritual life is meant, for in the spiritual sense food in general is all the good of love and also all the truth of faith, and these two are what make spiritual life.
