Well I have a question.
I have not been to very many Catholic Churches but I have been to a few services. The ones I have seen, They have one Chalice (I understand that) and is used in the Rite. After the Rite, Everyone drinks from that same cup rather than using the wine from that Chalice and separating it in different tiny cups. Alot of Protestant denominations do separate it out because of health reasons of drinking after alot of people and the possible spread of diseases or some kinds of STDs. (Hep C for example can be spread by drinking after another)
I understand of drinking from the same ‘cup’ but is it necessary not to separate it out afterward the Rite to avoid the spread of diseases? I would still be all the same blessed wine.
Like I have said before, I have not been to many Catholic Churches so if they now often separate it out after the Rite, I have no knowledge. Was wondering about this.
