You Can’t Just Haul A Cooler of Wine to Mass

Well, no. It doesn’t work that way.

But the making of wine popsicles on a crucifix stick, that’s slightly clever. On the other hand, I prefer my wine chilled and white, not frozen.

      No, it is whatever wine and bread the priest INTENDS to consecrate. Usually, the priest would intend to consecrate the elements that are on the altar, or perhaps, more narrowly, on the corporal.
