Fruit of the vine...

Prayers of Mass at Preparation of the Gifts...

 Priest: Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation.  Through your
goodness we have
this wine to offer, fruit of the vine and work of human hands.  It will become for us our spiritual drink.
All: Blessed be God forever

"St Vincentia Gerosa would take care of grapevines that
supplied wine for Holy Mass.  She cultivated and pruned them with
her own hands, finding it a tremendous honor and privilege because
these clusters that she had grown would become the Blood of Christ."
Hidden Treasure,
The Riches of the Eucharist
