Host is a collaboration between science and religion. It is a card containing yeast powder, the biological reaction of the yeast with edible ink in a liquid mixture helps to understand the religious meaning of the Host. The process of eating the card, actually hosting some changeable living organism, makes the metaphor of eating Christ’s body more evident and perceptible by our senses, through sight and taste. Believers can buy their own host and consume it at home or bring it to church. When it comes to microbes, big things come from small packages.
