A History Of The Mass And Its Ceremonies In The Eastern And Western Church -Rev John O'Brien A.M.

IF we except the Aquarians alone, who said that water may be employed instead of wine in the consecration of the chalice, no dispute has ever arisen upon this subject; all are at one in holding that for the valid consecration of this species the juice of the grape (vinum de vite) is necessary. Nor does it matter as to the color of the wine; some prefer red, others white wine, but this is altogether a matter of taste. One great advantage that red wine has is this: that there is no danger of mistaking it for water, owing to its resemblance in color to blood.
