The Church has great reverence for the Body and Blood of Christ, and so she is concerned that particles of that heavenly food be lost or unintentionally profaned. The Council of Trent taught that even the tiniest particle of the Sacred Species is the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, substantially present in this sacrament. Therefore, after the distribution of Holy Communion, whereas the priest-celebrant purifies his fingers with wine and again with wine and water, priests and deacons who distribute Holy Communion during the course of the Mass, as well as outside of Mass, will employ the Ablution Cup to purify their fingers of the sacred particles of the Host.
The Ablution Cup, filled with water, is typically a small bowl-like container, located near the tabernacle. + We gladly accept Pay Pal +. +++ THE CHURCH GUY HAS BEEN TRAVELING THE GLOBE +++.
