Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Maundy Thursday (also known as Holy Thursday) commemorates the Last Supper, where Christ lays out the model for the Eucharist or Holy Communion. During the meal, Jesus predicted the events that would immediately follow, including his betrayal, the Denial of Peter, and his death and resurrection. Events of the last supper play varying roles in commemoration liturgies depending on the denomination.
This year, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no open air celebrations. Churches will be shut to the public and everyone will have to stay indoors.

It's a beautiful cloth, & how wonderful to change it with the seasons. I'm glad you had the honour of carrying it - & at such a young age, too. It's these things which shape our faith as we grow.

Hi Lunie. Thank you for your comment. They don't use these linen bread covers any more because there were thefts. They put the bread pieces in a big open basket without cover. But priests have them around in the church sanctuary and during christenings.

Thank you Nicco for sharing this beautiful memory of Maundy Thursday. At the end of the Greek Orthodox Mass is a custom to give a piece of bread to the church attendants on their way out. The linen cover of the bread basket changes according to season (Christmas-Easter etc). When I was 9yrs old I used to carry one of these bread basket on Holy Thursday which was considered an honour.

Jillian you are welcome. I think this embroidered linen is most appropriate for the Easter basket cover.

I love this post for Maundy Thursday, Marina. It reminds me of when I was a little girl at my C of E primary school which was attached to the big church in the town where I was christened. Every Maundy Thursday we had to take eggs to the eldery people who lived in the elms houses attached to the church. Here is a link to a picture of it...
