The use of the chalice “common cup” used to be universal in Lutheranism but in the past century its use has become infrequent. People mistakenly believe that germs are easily transmitted by using the chalice. However, the combination of the noble metal of the chalice and the alcohol content of the wine makes the possibility for germs to be transmitted almost nonexistent. The following article explains this further:

Can I get sick from using the common cup? 

No! The use of the common cup was traditional in all Christian churches until the 20th century and discontinued in many churches because of fears about sanitary matters concerning the transmission of disease. A thorough study was done by the scientific community and reported in Journal of Infectious Diseases, their conclusion was: Experiments on the transmission of organisms from one person to another by common use of the chalice showed that 0.001% of the organisms transferred even under the most favorable conditions and when conditions approximated those of actual use, no transmission could be detected.

It is through hands that most disease is transmitted, which makes Communion by intinction more prone to disease than receiving the common cup, since those who give the Sacrament touch both the Host and Wine. And how many hands touch the “little glasses”? The alternative is to reject the command of Christ and refrain from Communion altogether.

Lutherans should remember that Martin Luther restored the cup when Roman Catholics had all but eliminated it from the peoples’ Communion. He did it because his loyalty was to the command of Christ in the Bible. The use of the common cup was normative until the late 19th century and was eliminated in those churches in which Communion was not understood as being the Body and Blood of Christ.

Some Lutherans allow other methods of distribution, believing that the method of distribution does not matter. However, the use of the common chalice retains that which Our Lord indicated was His desire. And, its effect, where used, is to transmit not only salvation but also the oneness that comes from sharing the Blood of Christ from the Chalice in common with one’s sisters and brothers. All the faithful respond to Christ’s words: “Then he took a cup, and when he had returned thanks, he gave it to them. ‘Drink all of you from this,’ he said.” Matthew 26:27.
