In the celebration of the Eucharist in Eastern Rites (Uniat) a spoon is used for conveying a part of the Host soaked in consecrated wine to the communicant. In some places a spoon is used to measure the few drops of water mixed with wine at the celebration of the Mass. A spoonful of water is used also to help the sick swallow the Sacred Host.
