The writer dosn't mean after communion does he or she?

I thought the traditional way of purifying the chalice after communion used to be for the priest to pour unconsecrated wine into the chalice and then consume that. Clearly that is no longer the norm (at least within mass, I don't know what happens after), but might this be what the priest is doing?

Ed Peters

"...what he is doing is pouring unconsecrated wine into the Precious Blood, diluting it--possibly to the point that the Real Presence ceases."

And Jimmy, what point is that? We're not talking about adding water, etc., which at some hard-to-identify point would render what is in the cup no longer "Wine" (yes, you know what I mean), since at no point would this not still have the appearance of "Wine". Little help? Great question and a good start toward it. Thx, edp.

I really find this hard to believe. The priesthood is more collegial than some folks might suppose and it doesn't seem likely that a priest could carry on this way for very long without someone correcting him.

On a related issue, I've heard some folks suggest that if you are running low on Blessed water you can simply add water to increase the volume without changing the substance or losing the blessing. I believe that this would be considered an abuse as well however.

Mark:

There is a difference. Holy Water is a sacramental, which means that matter and form don't matter as much. However, matter and form for a Sacrament do matter.

JR, I think you may be on to it. Otherwise this just seems too weird.

Purifying the chalice by two ablutions, one with wine and the second with water, is something I still see done occasionally by some priests, though how it conforms with what the Church has instructed priests to do is something I don't know.
