The Travails Of Swamp Orthodoxy


My wife is making prosphora (communion bread) this afternoon. She says to me just now:

“Check the Internet to see what the humidity is.”


“Because dough is sticking to the wooden prosphora seal.”

“OK. Says here the humidity is 76 percent.”

“Mmm-hmm. I swear, I’m going to have to find somebody who can make prosphora seals in silicone.”

Hey Orthodox readers, do they make prosphora seals in silicone? Because we sure could use one.
