I often wonder tho if the catholic church substitutes grape juice for the wine or some lame crap .They do it more than once a year and if it were actually wine it would cost a small fortune .
The Catholic church that my wife attends (and every other RC Church I've ever known about) uses real wine for communion. In fact, my wife's church sometimes uses white wine, which I find a bit distressing (it is supposed to represent blood, after all).
The Baptist church I go to uses grape juice, which I'm not crazy about - I think real wine would be better. But it's not a major issue for me. The symbolism is intact, though I think real wine would be closer to what Christ and the disciples actually drank.
