Default Information sheet on the Chastisement

Hi Ron and everyone,

I was thinking if we could make an info sheet on the Three Days of Darkness as well. Many of us may not make it until that event happens but probably some of our loved ones and even people who don't know about it may. A sheet that can be laminated and saved somewhere for future reference.

It could be a sheet telling about it with suggested prayers, songs, items, food, books and Sacramentals that can be used during those days.

I was also thinking that it could be great if someone could stay with a priest during those days so a person can prayerfully make bread with non fermented flour so a Holy Eucharist could be celebrated in-house. Eating the Body and drinking Blood of Christ during those days would be fantastic.

These are my suggestions so far:

How to prepare?
With prayer, works of mercy and self denial.

What to have in the house?
Books:
Bible, Imitation of Christ, books by the Saints or on their lives, a book with Christian songs (if the book includes song’s notes, better).

Items:
Blessed Candles (with a matchbox), Holy Water, Rosaries, if you know how to play an instrument, keep it for singing to God, such as guitar, violin, etc.

Sacramental:
Miraculous Medal, St. Benedict Medal, Brown scapular.

Food:
Store food that can be kept for those days without cooking. Wine. Water. Fruits.

Prayers and Songs:
Rosary
Divine Mercy Chaplet
Prayer to the Holy Trinity, Our Blessed Mother, St. Joseph and many other Saints (can be sang too).
Ave Maria (song in Latin)
The Lord is my Shepherd [A Psalm of David] (song)

Default The wine that becomes the Blood of Christ once Concecrated

This is the wine that is used at my parish for its consecration during a Holy Mass or Eucharist:



It's imported from Israel. It's a good wine, but once concecrated by a priest, this becomes the Blood of our Lord. So, it's not just any wine, it has to be Sacramental.

I'm thinking of having one of these in my home so when the days come, this could be used for consecration during an in-house Eucharist with a priest, if not, one can just very well enjoy the wine.

Really? I thought it could be any wine as long as it is red wine and is made from grapes.

Any wine with alcohol made from grapes is valid matter for consecration.
A wine made specifically for the purpose is preferred.

White wine is valid matter; red is preferred because of the similarity in appearance to blood.
