This week's question: I know that for Mass to be valid there must be more wine than water in the chalice but what if after a valid Mass, for example in purification or if there had been a spillage, so much water is added to the Precious Blood that there is a higher ratio of water to the accident of wine. Does it stop being the precious blood?

 

Christ’s Presence in the bread and wine is tied to the integrity of the species. Once this integrity is gone, then Christ’s Real Presence also disappears. Thus, if the quantity of water added (to the Precious Blood) dilutes the wine/Precious Blood to such a degree that the wine is no longer integrally what it once was, it has undergone such a change that removes the Real Presence. In other words, once the accident of wine is no longer there, the Precious Blood is no longer there, so once the wine is watered down to the point that it can no longer be considered wine it stops bearing the substance of the Precious Blood. In fact, water is used in order to ‘remove’ the presence of the Precious Blood. After the consecration a priest purifies the chalice with water in order to dilute the wine to the point where the Real Presence no longer remains. Likewise, if the Precious Blood is spilled the area must be washed with water and the water poured into the sacrarium (a special sink with a pipe leading to the earth) or directly onto the earth.
