At The Mass – Flagon
At the Mass…
At every Mass we have an Offertory. Often families or couples offer to bring forth the “gifts”, including the wine that will be consecrated at Mass.
This week we learn about the:
Decanter or Flagon (FLAG-un) – the bottle or pitcher-like vessel used to hold the wine which will be consecrated at Mass for the communion of the people; it is brought forth with the gifts.
