This Do In Remembrance of Me

 

The day before Spring, a month before Easter Sunday...they're connected

....and that's my post at Vision and Verb today.

First time I have ever connected communion wafers with casino chips, Ginnie.

I'll get to V&V a little later, with luck...
Ginnie Hart: Leave it to the Roman Catholics, Ray (shame on me!). And thanks.
This is a beautiful image of the symbol of faith for billions of people around the world Ginnie... quite suitable for Ash Wednesday....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Ash Wednesday was 2 weeks ago, Peter, but that's close enough since it's still the period of Lent. Billions of people...is right!
Very lovely display, Ginnie! And I love your V&V post!
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Elizabeth...on both accounts!
It feels very domestic with the kitchen tiles.
Ginnie Hart: I hadn't thought of that, Michael, but you're right! smile

I had never seen this before. So I got my education here.
Great shot and love the angle.
(I thought that Ash-Wednesday was on the 5th of March)
Ginnie Hart: This is not how we served Holy Communion in our protestant church growing up, MLMA, but more Roman Catholic you cannot get. And yes, you're right...Ash QWednesday was 2 weeks ago.....
i like the angle to show off each of the elements here. is there some liquid on the floor? are the tiles worn out a little bit?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. No liquid on the floor...just very worn, I assume, from time. It does make you wonder, though, doesn't it!

Everything in place for the event
Ginnie Hart: The service was just getting ready to start, Chris, and so we left...but not before taking some opportune shots.
In nomine pater.Have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Oscar...and CONGRATULATIONS on your new boy!!!

So beautifully presented, as indeed it should be for this ritual, Ginnie. Your V and V is thought-provoking as usual, and warrants another read
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, Lisl. Thanks for reading the post at V&V....

good photo of important symbols of many lives
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Adrian. Not many have no clue what this is all about!

"Solches tut zu meinem Gedächtnis" -our Protestant reverend used to say - there is quite a difference of meaning between Catholics and Protestants in this ritual- oh, I remember well that situation in the grandious church - like Astrid I had never seen it before in this presentation - a very fine photo - and later I'll read your contemplation about this our season.
Ginnie Hart: There are so many difference between Protestant and Roman Catholic worhsip, Philine, it's hard to believe they're from the same religion, Christianity! I agree. Thank you....

Interesting place; lovely warm colors.
Ginnie Hart: We were there just before the service started, HF, and had to leave. But I was very glad to have seen this.
If I hadn't read the V&V I wouldn't have known what this was
Ginnie Hart: Very interesting, Bill. WOW. Hmmmm. Maybe it's not as commonplace as I thought?

Attractive composition in the warm colors which we want to taste
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. It's the first time I have come across this while visiting a church. We got there just before a service was starting late afternoon....

I look forward to reading your piece later today Ginnie, bravo you star.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Chad. Thanks.
A bit different in the Catholic church but the idea is the same.
Ginnie Hart: Different from what I grew up with in my small, conservative Protestant church, Mary, but definitely recognizable.
I like your composition using the diagonals, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Martin.

Are you ready!? I like te symbolism on that serving board.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Louis! Thanks.

A warm image of this table. On my way to V&V.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sister.
Ready and waiting for the faithful to come, Ginnie. You've really given this religious scene a very warm & welcoming feel. Love the symbolic drawings on the white board as well as the crochet insert of the white cloth covering the table top.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. It was quite educational to see this Eucharist set-up in this old catholic church. Even though I didn't grow up with this kind of Holy Communion, it was unmistakable what it was.

I'll have to catch up with your V & V posting alter on.For now, I will just enjoy this photo.
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Alan.
prêt à communier mes fautes ,belle journée
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Keyouest!
This is pretty amazing Ginnie! Always a thought eh... nicely framed!
Ginnie Hart: I really enjoyed seeing this in the old church, Ronky, before their service. Thanks.
What's that above the candlestick(?)?

Cheeseboard? wink
Ginnie Hart: Good question, LC. I actually think that may be the priest's chalice and not a candlestick, in which case the cloth is protecting it? Hmmmm.
Heading on over to V&V where I'm sure I'll learn so much as I always do from you!
Ginnie Hart: You're such a sweetheart, Robin. Thank you.
What a beautiful communion table laid out there Ginnie, so different from ours at our Baptist church, but still in celebration of the same thing, that's what's important. Will catch up with V.& V.shortly.
Ginnie Hart: You and I are in the same boat about these things, Brian. This was new for me, too. We were just lucky we got to see this before the service took place. Thank you.
This beautiful picture illustrates quite well this sad period of the year for you Ginnie! I am touched.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Richard, the sadness is really gone now, after so many years. I remember everything that was good about the people I loved! Death has given way to resurrection. Winter has turned to spring! Merci.
Nice colour, I suppose I respect the tradition if nothing else.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, John. It holds a lot of meaning from my earlier years.... Thanks.
I was baffled for a while, never having partaken smile
Ginnie Hart: I guess this IS new for some people, Tom. Astrid quite surprised me when she told me as a Mennonite they never observed the Lord's Supper. That has been my biggest surprise of all!
A great photo ...nicely taken aswell
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Shane.
Not being a church person, the religious significance is lost on me. But it is a lovely shot.
Ginnie Hart: This is a set-up for Holy Communion or The Lord's Supper, Michael. I grew up as a Protestant, so our set-up wasn't quite as ornate as this Roman Catholic one.
... all the lines and shapes > straight, circular, square each command your view
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. When I think of all the churches we visit, we were so lucky to see this once like this!

I love this image the circle contrasting with the squares. There is so much to see...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry. There is definitely a lot to see!
