Laodicea - Canon 14

The holy things are not to be sent into other dioceses at the feast of Easter by way of eulogiæ.

At the time of this canon, a practice had been developed that when no overseer was available in e church, one from a neighboring church consecrated the bread for the Lord's Supper and had them delivered for their use.  Easter was considered too holy of a day to practice this.
