The Grail cup

Why The Grail?grailWebLogo7_Oct11 CUP ALONE

The medieval stories of the Quest for the Grail (the sacred cup said to have been used by Jesus at the Last Supper) are full of symbols to inspire a Christian youth movement, in particular a life of active seeking for truth, justice, love and integrity.

That symbol of The Grail -  the cup - has come to mean many things to Grail women.  To some it represents an empty receptacle ever ready to be filled, shared, poured out (and filled again); to some,  a womb which nurtures the growth of new life;  to others, a ‘cup of living water’ from which we drink to be spiritually refreshed and nourished.
