Water mixed with wine in mass


The water that is mixed with the wine during every mass, does that water have blessed salt in it? Is it holy water?





No, its plain tap water.


No salt. Itdoes become holy water.

St. Thomas Aquinas wrote:
"Thirdly, because this is adapted for signifying the effect of this sacrament, since as Pope Julius says (Concil. Bracarens iii, Can. 1): [INDENT]‘We see that the people are signified by the water, but Christ’s blood by the wine. Therefore when water is mixed with the wine in the chalice, the people [are] made one with Christ.’
