It still exists. There are times when the blessed Sacrament becomes more important than Jesus himself if that makes any sense.
I was in the dominican Friary for confession today. I happened upon a man who travelled from the Holy land to set up shop selling religious items for when mass ends at the back of the church. He’s obviously been given the permission to do this.
No doubt he was told he could come in but how was he to know the Blessed Sacrament would be there? He has to set up shop before Vigil Mass begins but just before then the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is happening.
He’s stuck between a rock and a hard place. The priest comes down and scolds him, ”You can’t be doing this in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament on the altar.
I thought to myself, ”Dear God, it is times like this when their misguided love and understanding of you becomes more important than you. Will they ever learn?
