Hundreds of thousands of people flooded the Benjamin Franklin Parkway for Pope Francis' Papal mass on Sunday. That's a lot of people, which means they needed to have a lot of alter bread to accommodate those wanting to receive communion.
Have you ever wondered where that alter bread is made? PHL17's Zachery Lashway pays a visit to cloistered nuns at the Monastery of Saint Clare in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.
The sisters at the monastery in Bucks County, PA say they make about seven-thousand alters breads each day, which comes out to about 125-thousand breads a month, but the order they were about to get was much bigger.
These sisters were presented with the opportunity to make 100-thousand alter breads for Pope Francis' mass.
Find out how they completed the tall order! And you might be surprised to find out what alter bread is made of. Take a look!
