Yes I don't always drink the wine, like if I have a cold (to prevent germ spreading).

I can just see the priest cleaning all of those small cups, it would take a very long time if many people came to Mass. It would need to be gold cups as well. I don't think it would be possible.

RESPONSE:

Apparently you haven't attended a Catholic Mass in some time.

More or less since Vatican II, the Eucharist under both bread and wine are routinely distributed to the laity at every Mass.

Yeah, nothing like 2-300 people drinking of the same cup. I refused.

But now I'm educated and would refuse anyway.

I don't eat any bread or drink any wine at my RCC. I receive the body and blood of Christ.

The wine is optional.

BTW, if you are not Catholic you are not supposed to take communion.

I spent a year and a half in the catholic church, time I cannot get back.


But I learned a lot and since my study of history I have an experience to reflect on.

Not only did the 'church' toll on my spirit, she did too.

Catholicism is not for everybody. It works best if you are a Catholic by ancestry.
