On the feast of Saint John, Apostle
Graciously bless and sanctify, O Lord
God, this wine and this drink with Thy right
hand, and grant that by the merits of Saint John, Apostle
and Evangelist, all who believe in Thee and partake of this wine may be blessed and protected. And as Saint John
drank poison from a cup and was unharmed, so may all those who this day drink of this cup in honor of Saint John
be preserved from all poisoning and other harmful things, and as they offer themselves to Thee in body and soul
may they be free of all guilt. Through Christ
our Lord. Amen.
Bless, O Lord, this drink which Thou hast created, that it may be a salutary remedy for all who partake of it, and grant that all who taste of it may, by invoking Thy holy name, receive health for body and soul. Through Christ
our Lord. Amen.
And may the blessing
of Almighty God, of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, come down upon this wine and any other drink, and remain forever. Amen.

Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
