Maundy Thursday

This slab (with its representation of a priest and his chalice) has been reused as the lintel above a window beneath the tower in the redundant church at Buslingthorpe; it isn't something we'd found before, but we were there again last week when we had a visitor and had it pointed out to us. I was going to type a reflection here but have run out of the space in which to prepare it between the Chrism Eucharist in the Cathedral this morning and our own Last Supper services this evening, so the allusive and elusive nature of the carving and its accidental preservation through reuse will have to be the whole of the meditation on priesthood and Eucharist for today.
