After the 9 AM Mass on Thursday, Dec. 27, the feast of St. John the Apostle, wine brought by the faithful will be blessed. This is done in memory and honor of St. John, who without detriment drank the poisoned wine proffered by his enemies.
This is represented in the painting of St. John in the dome of the sanctuary, which shows him holding a chalice with a snake emerging. It is said that while in Ephesus, St. John was offered a cup of poisoned wine. Before drinking, he blessed the drink and the poison came out of the cup in the form of a serpent.
