tabernacle for the Eucharist

   This word (from the Latin tabernaculum, meaning "tent") refers to the receptacle in a church in which the hosts consecrated at the Eucharist are reserved for distribution to the sick and those unable to attend Mass. The reservation of the Eucharist provides the opportunity for devotions such as visits to the Blessed Sacrament and benediction. (See CCC 1379)
