On Matthew.13581358    De Magistris, Acta Martyrum Ostiens., p. 405.

Matt. vi. 11.13591359    He is giving his opinion on the ἐπιούσιον, i.e., the “daily bread.”

For this reason we are enjoined to ask what is sufficient for the preservation of the substance of the body: not luxury, but food, which restores what the body loses, and prevents death by hunger; not tables to inflame and drive on to pleasures, nor such things as make the body wax wanton against the soul; but bread, and that, too, not for a great number of years, but what is sufficient for us to-day.
