One of the movements of the offertory, after the gifts are brought to the altar, is that the deacon, or if there is no deacon the priest, pours a little water into the wine. St. Thomas Aquinas in his great "Summa Theologica" lists several reasons for this addition of water to the wine.
Mass is so boring! What can I do to get into it more?
Today, there are more ways for us to be entertained than ever before. With such a plethora of choices, it's easy for us to always be looking for that which excites us the most.

Growing up, my parents occasionally went to Shop 'n Save. My job was to bag the groceries. In my teenage gusto, I bagged the groceries heavy, stuffing as much as I could in the bags. I remember Mom reminding me on at least a few occasions to bag the bread separately and to put it in a separate place, lest it get smashed. I remember a few sandwiches at school that didn't quite look the same as the other students until I had learned this lesson.
