After Mass today, the lady in front of me turned and asked me if I knew why the priest puts a small piece of the Body of Christ into the chalice with the Precious Blood. I’ve been a Catholic for almost 40 years, and I’ve often wondered about this myself. I was a bit embarassed to tell her that I didn’t know. But I told her I would try to find out. Does anyone here know the answer?
Thank you and God Bless!
