note about distribution
'''Antidoron''' (from Greek, meaning "instead of the gifts") is the remaining bread from a loaf of [[prosphora]] after the Lamb has been removed for the Holy [[Eucharist]]. It is blessed immediately after the [[epiclesis]] during the [[Divine Liturgy]] and is given by the [[priest]] to the faithful after the service.
 
In some practice, antidoron may be distributed to non-Orthodox Christians who attend an Orthodox liturgy, but in other places, it is reserved only for the faithful.
