Preparing for a Feast: Profane

________________

Preparations for the feast of St Joseph also involve food:

Quite a lot of food.

________________

Vegetarian curries and rice will be prepared in almost industrial quantities

To feed people of all faiths and denominations.

Preparing for a Feast: Sacred

Today is the Feast of St Joseph.

Late on Thursday evening, a friend took me on his motorbike to St Anthony’s Church, Kannamaly – a quiet semi-rural backwater of Cochin –

Where preparations for the annual festival involve the entire community.
