When we receive the Eucharist through the Sacrament of Communion God cleanses us free of sin, which is like the offerings brought upon the Lord during Passover. The unleavened bread in Passover is like the host that is consecrated to Christians during Communion. The Holy unleavened bread (host) and wine remind us of Jesus’ Passover.

The big deal she makes about having “God in my back yard” is humorous to the reader, who knows that the communion wafer is not really God.
