Pope Francis: Brass Ciborium Used at a Papal Mass in New YorkThis is a brass ciborium measuring 6 1/4 inches in diameter with an inner depth of 2 inches.
A small loop is on the side to hold when being used to distribute the Eucharist.
On the inside of the lid is an inscription: “A gift from the Archbishop of New York, used at the Mass of Pope Francis on September 25, 2015.”
His papal coat of arms is engraved on the side.
A ciborium is the vessel that was originally a drinking cup but later was used to refer to a receptacle for the Blessed Sacrament. It is used at Mass to contain the hosts that are consecrated and then distributed to the faithful during Holy Communion.
