prosporo - an offering

“The prosphoro teaches us patience.  It teaches us that everything in life goes through a state of fermentation.  The Orthodox Church chooses to work with fermented products – bread and wine – and not with unleavened or unfermented.  This teaches us a lot about the mystical way in which everything in life works : with patience and in a slow, quiet, inconspicuous,  discreet way.”

from the book : Prosphoro and Artos – Communion Bread and Blessed Bread
