Which one of these things is not like the others?
A) Cross-hatched loaf. Get a a little cheese, some slices of sausage, some wine… what’s not to like?
B) Hot Cross Buns. Hot from the oven! Yum.
C) The “bread” at the “cluster” in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee at St. Joan’s and St. Catherine’s (recently featured HERE). They have their own bread ministry. Often referred to by libs as “substantial bread”. It’s more meaningful, you see, because it looks nothing like a cow pie run over by a tractor, but like real bread. Doesn’t it make you think of bread? Immediately? Consider the joiys of the texture! Something like dried particle board. Meaningful. So are all the particles that scatter pretty much everywhere, uncontrollable.
D) Making hosts at St. Agnes Church in St. Paul for all the parish Masses.
Speaking of “substantial bread”…
ANECDOTE: In my seminary in the USA – a horrible place filled with heresy and the black grief of the world – we had “substantial bread” that was so hard, so impossible to get down that even the liberals (the majority) complained about it. We received back the answer from the faculty that – I am NOT making this up! –
“The longer you chew, the more of a sacrament it is.”
To this day, that remark remains one of the stupidest things I have ever heard in a Catholic context.
