Sr Mericia's Miracle

Last year, Sister Mericia (of the community of Portuguese nuns who look after Clergy House) provded a stunning Easter cake - pictures of it are here. We wondered if she could equal that magnificent creation this year. She did - or rather, surpassed it!


The Paschal Lamb is portrayed upon the table of the Last Supper, with the bread and wine of the Eucharist ranged about.

There are stools (in solid chocolate!) set around the table.

The table is covered with a cloth, embroided with eucharistic symbols of grapes and wheat.

Don't let Sister read the Holy Father's Holy Thursday homily for last year, which suggested there was no Paschal Lamb at the Last Supper !!!

Do you have the courage to eat and destroy such a piece of (culinary) art?

It's a miracle alright. I thought we were supposed to be eating The Lamb. Lovely work apart from the glaring inaccuracy.
