A Maundy Thursday triumph for the Domestic Church

... thanks to Catholic Icing!

It's been a while since I've done anything for the Liturgical Year in our house. But today, thanks to a new printer, I was able to print off the FANTASTIC downloads created by Lacy for the Last Supper, based on Da Vinci's painting.

Simply using two egg carton, Catholic Icing's downloads, and some wooden sticks we recreated Da Vinci's masterpiece in one day!

You can see Jesus in the middle there, and Judas about to take off but the rest of the apostles are literally a blur after Little Man's colouring-in!

Lacy's amazing creation is not done justice by our version, and we changed it slightly by sticking her images onto large paddle pop sticks so they weren't glued onto the egg cartons.

The sticks ended up being the best as we ended up doing a mini-puppet show after dinner where we did an impromptu version of the Last Supper, complete with the washing of feet, institution of the Eucharist, Agony in the Garden, and the arrest of Jesus all in inexplicable American accents and a bit of sword play. Above, Little Man has broken with Scripture and Tradition by having one of the apostles dance on the table... hmmmm, must have been the wine...
