Magna-gift

I was thrilled to preside recently at the baptism of little Hildegard, daughter of Pray Tell contributor Kim Belcher. And I was thrilled today when Kim gave me this hand-made cup as a thank-you:

At first I was concerned about the handle placement, since I’m not left-handed. Then I got it: it’s for versus populum celebration.

  1. LOL! Love it!
    A church where I attend a meeting each week calls its coffee hour Jesus, Mary and a Cup of Joe.

    My priest calls it Jesus and Java.

  3. This mug has caused envy in the liturgical world.

    Someone there notes that the lid resembles a galero!

    A line of mugs (with options of versus populum or self referential) should finance Hildegard’s education.

    Of course if you are left handed this is a self-referential mug, and you would need a right handed self referential mug to celebrate versus populum.

    Purchase would include a complex set of “rubrics”.
