Blessing of wine for the sick from the 1964 Roman Ritual.


P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.
All: Who made heaven and earth.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: May He also be with you.

Let us pray.
Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who in Cana of Galilee changed water into wine, be pleased to bless + and to hallow + this creature, wine, which you have given as refreshment for your servants. And grant that whenever it is taken as drink or poured into wounds it will be accompanied by an outpouring of grace from on high.

Let us pray.
Almighty eternal God, everlasting salvation to those who believe in you; graciously hear us on behalf of your sick servant, for whom we beg your merciful aid, so that having recovered from his (her) illness he (she) may give thanks to you in your Church; through Christ our Lord
All: Amen.

It is sprinkled with holy water.
