Belief



I have forgotten where I found this image. It is labelled as "magnet". It is a quotation from "Alice" that I have liked for a long time. It is my belief that Alice Lidell would have been attending confirmation classes when she knew Dodgson. He never took holy orders, even though it was a condition of his employment. And Alice would have to take confirmation classes if she was to receive communion - which back then required fasting. So typically communion was taken "before breakfast" - and in order to take communion you had to agree to believe a lot of impossible things. Like "transubstantiation".
