There was a rather interesting article in the NYTimes about the Cavanagh Company, the largest manufacturer of communion bread. Apparently, much of their success is a direct result of the extremely high quality of their product. Rev. Bob Dietel, an Episcopal priest, sings the praises of the first-rate Cavanagh wafer:
It doesn’t crumb, and I don’t like fragments of our Lord scattering all over the floor.
And it’s so true… Cleaning up crumbs of the Lamb of God is such a pain. Though I do keep some Christ-Be-Gone around the house, just in case someone leaves a trail of the Alpha and the Omega all over my clean floor… Though I will say, it’s certainly a lot easier to get bits of the King of Kings out from under the sofa cushions than pet hair.
