Giving wine and Prosphora is how the Orthodox Church traditionally performs the Holy Communion Mystery. Prosphora is the name of the bread that is baked just for communion (and it is also the Greek word meaning that "something is offered".) In order to complete the Prosphora for the Liturgy, seals or stamps are needed. The symbolic image of Christ's body offered to the people is called prosphora, an act which happened for the first time during the Last Supper.
