September 11, 1226

On September 11, 1226, the Roman Catholic practice of the public adoration of the Blessed Sacrament (the wine and the wafers, or the grape juice and the crackers if you’re Baptist) spread from the ceremony of the Mass in the monasteries to the general parishes. This food worship can still be observed today as Hipsters take several selfies of their kimchi tacos, heirloom tomato pickles, and coffee and cocoa craft pilsners.
