Of Prosphoras and Pre-Cut Pieces

Some may find the following interesting.
 
Discussing the difference between Byzantine Catholicism and Orthodoxy on how the eucharistic bread is prepared and a bit about the history of the difference.

Indeed.  A number of years ago one of the faithful who was formerly Ruthenian Catholic asked me why they were "perfect cubes" when he used to take communion in the Ruthenian church but not now in the Orthodox Church.  I had to explain to him this very matter, that it was pre-cut in the Ruthenian church.

I remember, the first time I received communion in my friend's Ruthenian parish (I was Latin Catholic at the time), the pre-cut bread was stale, or at least extremely hard like a rock.  I had great difficulty swallowing.

When Patriarch Alexi II of thrice blessed memory came to the US, there was a liturgy held at Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois. Fr. Hillary of thrice blessed memory a frail 80-something year old priest had a chalice which held 5 gallons of wine. It was so heavy that Fr. Hillary had to have 2 deacons hold his arms while he was giving communion to ensure that he could hold the chalice.
