I’m planning on making my son a wooden chalice from olive wood stock. He’s currently in the Seminary and hopefully on track to be Ordained.
The chalice will host a metal cup inserted into the wood casing.
My question is:
… does the metal have to be non-pores precious?
…. gold, silver, and/or platinum?
… or can it be crafted with a non-pores non-precious metal?
… sterling silver, stainless steel?
I want to comply with the Roman Catholic tradition.
Looking forward to your declarative
