smooth, super thin crackers that melt in your mouth. they also give you wine, so i developed a taste for it as a 5 year old lol

I hated them. They tasted so bland. So my church must’ve got different wafers than what you guys got

level 5

I didn't like them at first, but they grew on me. What did it was the fact that in Catholicism, you're supposed to not chew the wafer, but let it sit and disintegrate in your mouth. And for some reason when it mixed with the taste of the red wine it was delicious.

level 6

Fun fact: crackers and wafers will taste sweeter the longer they stay in your mouth, because your saliva breaks down the complex carbs into simple sugars.

level 7

When I was a kid I noticed if I chewed rice in my mouth for forever this would happen. So I’d sit there chewing a spoonful of rice for a solid minute. Looking back on it, my parents must have thought I was something special.

Your taste receptors are probably a little further back on your tongue than most people and since it had already transubstantiated you were unknowingly becoming a cannibal. I'm a scientist.

I always folded them up into a triangle with my tongue and swallow them. Never could get past the taste.

Isn’t it meant to turn into flesh. I think depending on your denomination. Not figuratively but literally flesh. Maybe you like to taste of that and not the wafer.

No, it is flesh, for Catholics. Literally, but not physically. Once the priest has blessed it.

I mean, usually first communion is in 2nd grade so I think you're a little off on the age there.

I thought you weren't supposed to get anything until you get confirmed

Not until your First Communion (about age 7), Confirmation is a separate thing and happens at about age 14.

You can also get them in sheets. Search for "Christmas Wafers" or "opłatki."

They're a Polish Christmas tradition. Everyone gets a sheet, and you go around to everyone so you can break off and eat small pieces from each other's pieces. It's literally breaking bread with one another, and you give well-wishes while you do it. :)

I went to an Orthodox Church and we didn't have wafers.

They had big loaves of bread cut up into little cubes and it was placed in a chalice of wine. The priest then fed you a spoonful of the wine & bread mix.

And everyone in the church all took communion by eating off the same spoon. Looking back at it....not sure how ok I am with eating off the same spoon 50 other people did.

I remember a street vendor outside our school selling the negative of the round wafer (so it's like a sheet, but with holes punched out of them). He sells them plain, or drizzled with molten sugar. I always get the sugared ones.

My kids teething crackers remind me of communion wafers. They’re not as thin, but they melt in your mouth and are pretty bland.

They sell them in Mexico, of course, but they have caramel filling in between two wafers. You can find them in Mexican grocery stores.

The candy form of communion candy for me are satellite wafers, it’s basically a communion candy with little sweet beads that are delicious. All in all it ends up as a delightful combination.

level 2

It might be sold in big Catholic churches with merch stores. Also, there’s a Mexican treat that is similar to this. I don’t know what it’s called though. I like texture too, melts like a plain ice cream cone.

Really? That’s interesting. Here in Belgium they taste like shit. Back in elementary everyone just secretly spat them out or just swallowed them very quickly because not a single kid liked it.

My church always used oyster crackers, so when I found out that they sold them in stores I bought four bags and gave them out to my family saying “I think you needed a little extra ‘Body of Christ’ today.”

This isn't a sin because they still have not been blessed by the priest so it is basically wheat crackers and monster

level 2

Has not been transubstantiated into Christ. Still 100% bread.

level 2
16 points · 1 month ago

Correct. Still looks odd though!

level 3

Is it a sin when they are blessed? If so is it the Monster that makes them sinful or the sheer quantity? Perhaps the spoon 🥄?

level 4

Short answer: absolutely yes. It's sacrilege all around.

Long answer: In Catholicism, the Eucharist is considered the Body of Christ in the literal sense, but is veiled by the accident and appearance of a simple bread wafer. The "blessing process" when done by a priest is transubstantiation. The Church is very particular on what bread can be used (unleavened, no crumbling, etc) and the process for administering the Eucharist/Host during communion. Typically, any deviation is considered sacrilege. If the wafers are blessed in this case, you would be witnessing Monster being poured on a sheer quantity of Hosts and eaten with a spoon- as Catholics believe this is the literal Body of Christ, this is grave sacrilege simply due to the sheer disrespect and trivialization Christ himself is being put through.

level 5

Oh wow, thanks for the detailed reply. Then this might be one of the most cursed images in this sub

Absolutely yes, in Catholicism we believe the substance of the bread becomes truly Jesus Christ after being blessed, it would be a grave sin to trivialise and demean literally God in doing this.
