Eucharistic Bread Basket
* The Eucharistic bread basket is a large basket, with a cross-embroidered lining, to hold the loaves baked for the Eucharist. Only one of the loaves, the most perfect of three, five, seven or nine etc..., is chosen for consecration as the "Lamb," and the remaining loaves are kept for distribution as blessed bread "Elugia" among the congregation at the end of the service.
