Before the service begins, prepare a meal for your household. A meatless meal is to be preferred. The setting should be austere and the foods sparse and simple. Appropriate foods include soup, cheese, olives, dried fruit, bread, and wine.
Set up your computer or mobile device at your table, or eat next to your computer where you can see and be seen. We are all sharing this meal together. Make it a sacred space. In particular, if possible, have a cross present in your space, and light a candle.
