Nice Christmas Gift for Father

Looking for something to give Father this year for Christmas that he will really enjoy? How about this replica of the St. Remy chalice used in 12th century Cathedral of Reims, made especially for distribution of Holy Communion by intinction. Isn't it beautiful?

It is available partially or completely handmade in 925 sterling silver gold plate. It has an attractive hand chased outer cup and base with open arch design exposing the brightly polished inner cup and base. It is about 4 1/2 inches tall by 6 inches in diameter. Set with genuine stones (Amethysts, Lapis Lazulis, Green Venturines and Garnets) as well as adorned with cloisonné fire enamel, the St. Remy intinction set is a superb blend of beauty, quality and dignity of design. Best of all, it's practically a steal at $8,495.00! Why wait? Go to this website to order one today; you might want to get an extra one for yourself as well.

And another sign that you might be a Traditionalist (at heart anyway) is ......


If you recognize the wonderful extravagance of this vessel that will carry the Lord..... and know that even it is not good enough for our God.

Pardon my ignorance but what is "distribution of Holy Communion by intinction"?

$9,000 eh? Hmmm...at that price we'd have to sell about 23 cows or 200 sheep. I don't think I can swing it!

(I'm a farmer's wife. Pardon me. hehehe)

Coffee Catholic-

"Intinction" means that the priest dips the Sacred Host in the Preciosu Blood and then distributes it, allowing the recipient to partake of both species without actually handling the chalice.
