What is the cup called used in communion?
In the celebration of Holy Communion, the Chalice is the cup in which the wine is consecrated. It is typically made of silver or gold and is often has a decorated base. The beauty of the chalice, however, is not in its external adornment but rather in the very blood of Christ it holds when the wine is consecrated.
Do Catholics share cup?
In biblical accounts of the first Eucharist, and in our recollection at every Mass, each invitation to the chalice includes a reference to covenant. Our sacramental participation in the new covenant is most clearly expressed by sharing in the cup because-as Hebrews 9 reminds us-blood is a central sign of covenant.
