the Little's convert to Orthodoxy...

... ok, not really. But this is one big chalice.

Those Russkies, they take the whole "common cup" thing really seriously.

And don't forget the spoon. Or in this case, I suppose a ladle is more appropriate.

At first glance, I thought it was a table-lamp.

I'm SOOOO going to hell for that one.

Wow. Just... wow.

No limp-wristed priests need apply. :)

it certainly beats consecrating one host and then opening up the tabernacle.

Also the Eastern Rites & derivatives (AKA Russian & Greek Orthodox) combine the Sacred species ("bread" (which is usually leavened) & "wine" (yeah, I know that for valid rites they ain't bread & wine anymore but that's why I quoted them to handle the case of invalid rites)) into a common cup (AKA chalice) and communicate using a spoon. (I'm going to that warmer region as I just had the thought that it brings new meaning to the phrase "Soup's on!")
