Spoon (2)

Spoon a vessel used both in preparing the chalice for the eucharist and for distributing the sacrament to the faithful generally, to the infirm, and the sick. In the first case the bowl is perforated, in order that any impurities in the altar wine may be easily and simply removed; in the other the bowl is solid, and the handle usually made in the form of a cross. Many ancient examples exist. The spoon is likewise used in the ceremonies of a coronation.
