According to Christian doctrine, Christ died on the cross to atone for the sins of mankind. For Roman Catholics, this sacrifice is repeated during Mass: the wine in the chalice is turned into the blood of Christ. For this reason this chalice depicts the crucified Christ, flanked by his mother, the Virgin Mary, and his disciple John the Evangelist.
