Clay Morris, the Episcopal Church USA's program officer for worship and spirituality, said research shows that the practice of sharing the common cup at Eucharist generally carries a very low risk of infection. But the practice of dipping the wafer, called intinction, may carry a higher risk since fingers are also often dipped into the wine.One reason it's safe to sip is that the real presence, Episcopal Church-style, features real wine. The main reason: God won't permit it!
