To begin, gather the gifts God gives us to experience Him through all of our senses, as you have available:
seal - gotta have this
prayers or psalms to read
list of people you are praying for
If you use this recipe, turn the oven down to 350 after 15 minutes, and bake the bread for another 20 minutes, or you may have the alter boys furrowing their eye-brows, trying to separate the raw dough from the edible bread to use for anti-doron. I would know nothing about that.
Tip: Since there is no oil used in the process, keep the dough from drying out while rising by using a clean, wet dish towel to cover the bowl of dough.
In this icon, Christ is visually the Bread of Life, filling the Eucharist cup.
After we take the Eucharist, we give thanks for Christ our Light & Life, entering us, and we are to go out into the world and live our lives so that we shine Christ's Light and Love.
Here are a few more pics from another post of mine.
