Church hands out fancy pre-packaged Holy Communion

Praying on the go.

TWENTIETH CENTURY LIFE can get pretty fast paced sometimes, even when it comes to having a pray.

This picture of a pre-packaged Holy Communion set of bread (in this case it appears to be an unleavened square rather than a wafer) and wine is going viral after it was posted on the Mildly Interesting subReddit.

Mildly interesting? We’ll say!

Turns out this kind of thing is fairly common in the US. There are whole websites dedicated to the sale of Communion paraphernalia.

How about a thirty day supply of Communion cups?

The thimble-esque cups work by storing the bread at the base:


And then they’re flipped over to release the wine (and provide a little message from Jesus):

These ones meanwhile store the wafer in the top of the cup.
