  1. Just a quirie– The picture displays only a partial loaf; is there an explanation as to not a whole loaf? There surely is not a part of Christ’s body missing!

    1. Some Christian Assemblies (or churches) quibble about the bread used for the Lord’s Supper: large loaf, small loaf, no loaf (onlycrackers), leavened bread, unleavened bread, transformed bread, etc. In your quirie, cut bread verses un-cut bread.
