the tabernacle

I made this for Lzzy Hale as a token of how much what her and Halestorm do for me. I thoroughly enjoy being pummeled sonically by them big time. It’s a mini version of her explorer carved into a leather bracelet. Hope i get to hand it to her at their Atlanta Tabernacle gig!! Gonna be a good show!! 

P.S.-check out my etsy shop for more awesome mini guitars and other cool wearable oddities.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/edjfieldarts?ref=search_shop_redirect 

April Dedicated to the Blessed Sacrament

During the month of April I have queued a quote a day about the Blessed Sacrament.  Some will be familiar and others new to some of you.  

I hope that during this month we will all take some time to: dwell on Jesus’ true presence in the Eucharist;  receive Him frequently in Holy Communion; and, spend time with Him either in the tabernacle or exposed in the monstrance.  

Jesus waits for us to heal us, bless us, fill us with Himself, commune with us and permeate every fiber of our being.  He truly does transform us every time we receive Him in Holy Communion.  The God of all choosing to live and dwell within you and me, choosing to remain with us always in the Blessed Sacrament.  How amazing and wonderful is our God!

Hello father! Just out of curiosity, what will happen to the consecrated Eucharist hosts that are removed from the tabernacle on Thursday? Do priests consume them, or is there a hidden tabernacle that they go in out of parishioner eyes? :P

Hello,

Usually, there are too many Hosts to consume. I take them to my side chapel, where the Altar of Repose has been set up for Holy Thursday and I leave the Blessed Sacrament there. Then I lock the chapel until the end of Holy Thursday Mass. That way, when people enter the main church, they see that the Tabernacle is empty.

In some churches, the priests will place the Eucharist in a locked closet in the sacristy until the Hosts consecrated from Mass are reposed for Holy Thursday night at the Altar of Repose, and then will take the Eucharist consecrated before and place It with the Hosts that are newly consecrated from Holy Thursday Mass.

God forbid, the Hosts that are present on Wednesday are not supposed to be “disposed of” by mixing them with water and pouring them down the sacrarium sink of the sacristy, but with the liturgical ignorance of some of the clergy, this might be going on as well. And this is done in spite of the fact that reminders are occasionally sent out that the Blessed Sacrament may not ever be disposed of in this way. In a very rare case, a chapel that is hardly used may be found with Hosts that were consecrated weeks ago and have become moldy, in which case it is alright to mix them with water so that they begin to dissolve and then pour the water down the sacrarium sink.

Have a blessed Holy Week and Sacred Triduum friend. And may Easter Resurrection find your soul rejoicing as you anticipate your own future glory with the Lord Jesus.

God bless and take care, Fr. Angel

When Vic played I’m Low On Gas And You Need A Jacket acoustic on the Spring Fever tour, the rest of the band went off stage and my friend, Kalina, wanted to take a picture of Mike. When she did, he looked right up at her and posed for her! We thought it was so sweet he would pose, and hold it, because it took her camera a while to focus. He definitely won favorite person award that night!

Here it is. Panic! fans break the Tabernacle. This was right after Zack ran out on stage to stop Brendon near the end of Time To Dance.
