Benediction With Ciborium

Resource Toolbox

A less solemn form of Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. At least six candles are lighted on the altar; the priest is usually vested in surplice and stole, but may wear the cope. The tabernacle is opened so that the ciborium containing the Blessed Sacrament can be seen; the "Tantum Ergo," "Panem de crelo" etc., and the prayer of the Blessed Sacrament are sung or recited and the priest imparts the blessing with the ciborium as is done in the more solemn form with the ostensorium. Incense may be used at the beginning of the exposition and during the "Tantum Ergo." No special permission of the bishop is required for this form of Benediction.
