give us this day our daily bread

...the nature that is temperate and content with little according to the ideas of apatheia should be made equal to the [angelic] nature that has no material needs at all...

Ask for bread because life needs it, and you owe it to the body because of your nature...[but] if the soul is perpetually occupied with [vanities] it remains atrophied itself.

St. Gregory of Nyssa.
