Mechanized ostensorium

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: What are the protocols for establishing a mechanized ostensorium at a Newman Center so that people can open and close doors at their leisure to see the exposed host?


A: There is absolutely no provision for such a device or procedure. Exposition only takes place during a liturgy and only by ordinary or extraordinary ministers. Exposing the Blessed Sacrament is not like turning on a lamp. Viewing is enshrined with utmost sacredness inside one of the liturgies of the Church.
