According to Western Christian belief, matzah was the bread used by Jesus in the Last Supper as there he was celebrating Passover; Communion wafers used by Roman Catholics (as well as in some Protestant traditions) for the Eucharist are flat. All Churches of the Eastern Orthodox Church used leavened bread for the Eucharist as this symbolizes the risen Christ. Some Oriental Orthodox Christians use leavened bread, as in the east there is the tradition that leavened bread was on the table of the Last Supper. In the Armenian Apostolic Church,the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church and Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Church unleavened bread is used for communion (called qddus qurban in the lithurgical language of the Eritreans and Ethiopians Ge'ez).

Famous quotes containing the words beliefs and/or christian:
“The methodological advice to interpret in a way that optimizes agreement should not be conceived as resting on a charitable assumption about human intelligence that might turn out to be false. If we cannot find a way to interpret the utterances and other behaviour of a creature as revealing a set of beliefs largely consistent and true by our standards, we have no reason to count that creature as rational, as having beliefs, or as saying anything.”
—Donald Davidson (b. 1917)
“Our age is pre-eminently the age of sympathy, as the eighteenth century was the age of reason. Our ideal men and women are they, whose sympathies have had the widest culture, whose aims do not end with self, whose philanthropy, though centrifugal, reaches around the globe.”
—Frances E. Willard 18391898, U.S. president of the Womens Christian Temperance Union 1879-1891, author, activist. The Womans Magazine, pp. 137-40 (January 1887)
