A Photo a Day: My Daily Sustenance, Day 96

Since today is Holy Thursday, I wanted to show a photo of a table with bread on it.  I have no picture of any kind of the Last Supper so I settled on this.  I think the essence and reverence of Jesus and his Apostles at table and their praying is shown here.
Below is the Last Supper reprint of da Vinci's painting.
May those attending Holy Thursday Masses tonight have their hearts touched by the celebration of this momentous occasion.

The picture of the old man saying the grace is somehow familiar. Ah yes. I think I remember it's been adopted by one one of the American States. But if I've seen it before presumably it's much more widely known. In fact I think I have it in, of all things, a very posh American cookery book in Scotland (but I may be wrong there) Am I correct about the rest?

GB, after reading your comment, I googled about the print. Now I've linked a site to it. As far as its being adopted by one of our states, I know nothing about that and I couldn't find anything on the internet.

Thanks Norma. I read your link and it said that the photo was taken at Bovey in Minnesota. So I went to Minnesota on Wiki and down at the bottom where they have the State Symbols I found that the State Photograph is Grace. The Wiki entry for Grace explains it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_%28photograph%29

Thanks for that. It's not only a wonderful photo but it's been educational working my way through the various bits of information.

I didn't know the picture at all but it is wonderful isn't it.
