• Should a 4-year-old be told that Mass wine is blood?

    • Nov 9, 2015

    Q. At Mass recently, after listening intently to the words of consecration, our 4-year-old granddaughter whispered to my wife, “Is wine really blood?” How would you answer her question? Also, would your answer be different for a 7-year-old, a teenager, or an adult taking RCIA classes? (Florence, South Carolina) A.
