2 issues: The 1st issue: you need not hold the cup. (I'm Catholic and know that) the priest will hold the cup for you or you can wait and dip your wafer in the wine.) 2nd issue: you have movement disorder that needs diagnosed. Propranolol helps familial tremor but cerebellar dysfunction, parkinsons disease, extra-pyramidal dysfunction, weakness all may be factors. Management hinges on correct diagnosis
