The front of the chalice veil (the design) and the front of the burse
(hinged portion) face the congregation. Both the burse and the chalice veil
are liturgically colored for the season.
THE INTINCTION CUP.This method of communion is used when
the chaplain takes a communion wafer from the cup, dips it into the wine or
juice in the chalice, and places it into the mouth of the worshipper. The
intinction cup is the small metal container rounded on one side which fits
into the chalice. It fits over the cup rim (see figure 3-40) and is used to hold
the communion wafers (bread).
