First we took a pita and discussed how the stripes remind us of Our Lord's scourged body and that by His stripes we are healed. We are also thankful that He gives His body to us in the Holy Eucharist to strengthen us along our journey.
We brushed the pita bread with olive oil for He was arrested in the Garden of Olives. (I bake these at 425 for about 5-8 min to get them crispy.)
Next we spread the pizza sauce to represent the blood He shed for us and for all so that sins may be forgiven.
The white cheese and mushrooms were added to represent purity from sin.
We added green bellpepper in the shape of a cross to represent life.
Black Olives were added for His 5 Wounds.
Onions were added last to represent tears shed.
I sprinkled a little more cheese on the top and baked them for about 10 min., keeping an eye on them so they didn't burn. They are very symbolic and yummy!
Lord by Your Cross and Resurrection You have set us free, You are The Savior of the World!
