Ablution of the Sacred Vessels
is the washing of the chalice and paten by the priest after celebrating the Christian eucharist. Two of the ancient English rites ordered (1) wine to be poured into the chalice (2) wine and water over the celebrant's fingers and (3) Water ony, in each of which cases the rinsings were partaken of by the priest. An almost similar rule is observed in the Latin communion, as may be seen from the concluding portion of the Canon Missae.
