[This Blessing should be done on the feast of Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist on December 28 th.]

V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.

V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.

Let us pray.

Be so kind as to bless and consecrate with Your right hand, Lord,
this cup of wine, and every drink.
Grant that by the merits of Saint John the Apostle and Evangelist,
all who believe in You and drink of this cup
may be blessed and protected.
Blessed John drank poison from the cup,
and was in no way harmed.
So, too, may all who this day drink from this cup
in honor of blessed John, by his merits,
be freed from every sickness by poisoning
and from any harms whatever.
And, when they have offered themselves in both soul and body,
may they be freed, too, from every fault,
through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

Bless, Lord, this beverage which You have made.
May it be a healthful refreshment to all who drink of it.
And grant by the invocation of Your holy name
that whoever tastes of it may,
by Your generosity receive health of both soul and body,
through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

And may the blessing of almighty God,
the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
descend upon this wine which He has made,
and upon every drink, and remain always,

R. Amen.

[Then the wine is sprinkled with holy water. If this blessing is given outside of Mass, the priest performs it in the manner described above, but with surplice and stole.]
