From the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer: Rite 1
Likewise, after supper, he took the cup; and when he had
given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink ye all of this;
for this is my Blood of the New Testament, which is shed for
you, and for many, for the remission of sins. Do this, as oft as
ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me.”
The wine thief plunged into the bung
Extracting its measure of dark red wine.
The wine flowed up from the bung
Like blood welling out of the arm
Into the needle that extracted it.
Metaphor or sacrilege?
