My son had a baseball tournament on the East side of the mountains this past weekend. We managed to attend Mass on Saturday evening. To my surprise I could not believe that he was using white wine to consecrate as the Precious Blood. (Let alone that the tabernacle is moved off to the side and the priests chair is in the center behind the altar.)
After Mass, after everyone was just about gone and I was still waiting for my husband and son, I couldn’t help but ask Father a couple of questions. One of which was, “…in my 31 years of receiving communion, I have never seen white wine used in the consecration. Why?” Father explained to me that the lay people have such a difficult time to try and clean the linens that they use white wine because it is easier.
Is this acceptable?
