Pope Benedict XVI uses the Holy Grail!

I just realized that Pope Benedict XVI used the Holy Grail when he celebrated the closing Mass of the World Meeting of Families in Valencia, Spain! Pope John Paul II also used the relic when he celebrated Mass in Valencia on Nov. 8, 1982.

According to tradition, The Holy Grail arrived in Valencia in 1437. St. Peter took the chalice from Jerusalem to Antioch centuries beforehand.
