Offerings and Libations

Priest: Accept these gifts, Lord, an offering and oblation to you.
Pewmate (whispering): Isn’t “offering and oblation” redundant?
Me (whispering back): I thought an “oblation” was a liquid.
Pewmate: I don’t think so.
Me: Maybe I’m thinking of “libation.”

    Offering is the offering up of bread and wine before consecration, and the oblation is the offering/elevation after consecration.

    I had to look that up. Thanks for helping me learn something, Cat!
