    Pretty sure it was from my grandfather who was a Presbyterian minister in upstate NY starting in 1930's. I think he often received gifts, so could be from anywhere. Any info appreciated.

      Have no idea either but can tell you this is one of the humorous motif of a Catholic monk drinking the wine they used for mass and communion with their congregation.

      Pax Vobiscum: "In Christian liturgy, "the Pax" is an abbreviation of the Latin salutations "pax vobis" ("peace to you") or "pax vobiscum" ("peace with you"), which are used in the Catholic Mass and Lutheran Divine Service." With the drinking wine image it can be another ironic message. :-)
