The Orthodox ritual of the common cup comes from the wedding at Cana of Galilee – the miracle where Jesus turned water to wine. During the wedding ceremony, the couple shares this cup of wine as a sign of their common life together. They each take 3 sips from the cup, one for each Person of the Holy Trinity. It also represents that from this point, the couple will share everything in their lives – share their burdens – the sad times will be halved and the happy times doubled.

*Note: Please do not machine-wash this cup. Instead, hand wash it using warm water and soft soap.
