Leavened Qurban

The Qurban used for Holy Eucharist and the Antidoron is leavened. Leavened Qurban is used for Holy Eucharist because it symbolizes the living, risen Holy God the Son within the Holy Trinity / Our Lord, God and Savior, Jesus Christ, given to us in the Mystical Supper. Leavened Qurban requires yeast.

Ingredients

Yeast

Use "normal" yeast. Do not use "active" yeast or "fast/quick rising" yeast. "Active" yeast and "fast/quick rising" yeast cause the dough to rise too much. Then, Holy Seal impression is not clear on the bread.

Sugar

Use graduated white sugar. The sugar is needed to activate the yeast.

Warm Water

Use warm water. The water must be between 100 and 110 degrees to activate the yeast. (120 degrees will burn a person.) Use a liquid thermometer to measure the temperature.
The warm water is needed to activate the yeast. Additionally, water is needed to combine the flour and salt into a mass.

Flour Type

Can use

  • flour made specifically for baking bread
  • all-purpose flour
  • bleached flour
  • unbleached flour
  • white flour
  • wheat flour
    • Up to 20 percent of the flour can be wheat flour.
    • However, many priest /abounas prefer white flour.
    • I recommend using only white flour.

Salt

Use table salt. The salt is needed to control the fermentation rate of yeast, to strengthen gluten protein in the dough, and to improve overall flavor. Without salt, bread rises faster and air pockets enlarge where the gluten has broken, allowing holes to form. Additionally, bread made without salt tastes blander.

No fat, oil, and grease

According to Rev. Father / Abouna Mark Malone, no fat can be near Holy Bread. Since oil and grease are by products of fat they can not be used.

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
