Liturgy & Liturgical Law Forum: Sacramental Wine
Sacramental Wine QUESTION from Father Taurasi on March 6, 2002 All commercially available wine, including sacramental wine which has been approved for Holy Mass, contains small amounts of sulfites.( I checked the bottle) Since the wine has been approved by the Church, it is both lawful and valid. I would think that other commercially available wine which is 100% grape wine and has an alcohol content between 12 and 18% would also be both lawful and valid.
ANSWER by Mr. Jacob Slavek on March 14, 2002 Dear Father,
Sounds good, thanks for the clarification. Maybe for our own reference could you post how/where it is stated where sulfites are approved.
Thank you again,
