“The real Holy Grail, is only the piece on the inside. This is sort of like a safe they’ve made to preserve it and to be able to display it.”

It’s been several years since workers here contacted a goldsmith in Valencia who crafts replicas of the chalice. Since then they’re shipped to this store and sold world wide.

“Some are familiar with the Holy Grail because of movies or novels, but generally speaking, priests and others who know the liturgy are the ones who come.”

A special chalice that can help priests from all around the world celebrate Mass with a little more devotion, a chalice that could be identical to the one used by Jesus Christ.
