When Liturgy Meets World

When you focus on liturgy for a significant portion of your waking hours you tend to see liturgical objects that may or may not actually be there. For example, after Serena Williams won the Wimbledon title for the 28th time or whatever I couldn't help but wonder why she was immediately handed a shiny, blinged-out church collection plate for her efforts.

Here are a few examples of what I'm talking about. You may well have other examples to share.

Chalice

Bishop's Pectoral Cross

Acolyte Master/Verger

Sacristy

Chalice Bearer

The Stanley Cup has been used as a baptismal font before.

Is there no end to your brilliance? Apparently not...and that's a good thing.

I would have expected better, Tim. It's an offering plate.

Actually, Dan, the technical term is a show-me-the-money plate.
