A History Of The Mass And Its Ceremonies In The Eastern And Western Church -Rev John O'Brien A.M.

The breads for the use of the altar are baked between heated irons upon which is stamped some pious device, such as the Crucifixion, the Lamb of God, or a simple cross. The instrument used for this purpose somewhat resembles a large forceps in appearance. It has two long handles, and at its extremities is a pair of circular heads, one overlapping the other. After this instrument has been sufficiently heated in the fire a little lard or butter is rubbed over its surface to keep the paste from adhering. A thin coating of this paste is then spread over the surface of the under disc, and the upper one being allowed to rest on it a moment or two, it is taken out perfectly baked. The irons are then separated, and the bread is taken out and trimmed for use.
