Rite of Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament: 

Kneel: When the presider (priest or deacon) goes to the tabernacle and when he opens it all kneel.
Once the celebrant has reached the front of the altar and kneels, O Saving Victim is sung by the congregation.

O salutaris Hostia
Quae caeli pandis ostium;
Bella premunt hostilia,
Da robur, fer auxillium.

     Uni trinoque Domino
     Sit sempiterna gloria,
     Qui vitam sine termino
     Nobis donet in patria. Amen.

O saving Victim, open wide
The gate of Heaven to man below;
Our foes press on from every side;
Your aid supply; your strength bestow. 

    To your great name be endless praise;
Immortal Godhead, One in Three;
Grant us, for endless length of days,
In our true native land to be. Amen.


During this period there may be appropriate prayers, songs, readings from scripture, and a brief homily to help the congregation focus its attention to the worship of the Lord. It is important to remember that the Eucharist is the “Real Presence” of Jesus Christ. You may kneel or be seated for your private portion of adoration/devotion.


After a period of meditation and reflection the celebrant goes to the altar, genuflects, and kneels. All kneel and join in singing the Tantum Ergo

TANTUM ergo Sacramentum
Veneremur cernui:
Et antiquum documentum
Novo cedat ritui:
Praestet fides supplementum
Sensuum defectui.

    Genitori, Genitoque
    Laus et iubilatio,
    Salus, honor, virtus quoque
    Sit et benedictio:
    Procedenti ab utroque
    Compar sit laudatio. Amen.

DOWN in adoration falling,
Lo! the sacred Host we hail,
Lo! oe’r ancient forms departing
Newer rites of grace prevail;
Faith for all defects supplying,
Where the feeble senses fail.

    To the everlasting Father,
And the Son Who reigns on high
With the Holy Spirit proceeding
Forth from each eternally,
Be salvation, honor blessing,
Might and endless majesty. Amen.

All remain kneeling when the presider stands and says: 

Priest/Deacon : You have given them Bread from heaven (P.T. Alleluia)
ALL                  : Having all sweetness within it (P.T. Alleluia)

Priest/Deacon :

Let us pray!

Lord Jesus Christ, you give us the eucharist as the memorial of your suffering and death. May our worship of this sacrament of your body and blood, help us to experience the salvation you won for us and the peace of the kingdom, where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.



Deus, qui nobis, sub sacraménto mirábili, passiónis tuæ memóriam reliquísti: tríbue, quæsumus; ita nos Córporis et Sánguinis tui sacra mystéria venerári, ut redemptiónis tuæ fructum in nobis júgiter sentiámus: Qui vivis et regnas in sæcula sæculórum.


O God, who in this wonderful Sacrament have left us a memorial of your
Passion, grant us, we pray, so to revere the sacred mysteries of your Body and Blood that we may always experience in ourselves the fruits of your redemption. Who live and reign with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.


Lord our God, in this great sacrament we come into the presence of Jesus Christ, your Son, born of the Virgin Mary and crucified for our salvation. May we who declare our faith in this fountain of love and mercy drink from it the water of everlasting life. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

ALL                 : Amen.


After the prayer, the priest of deacon puts on the humeral veil, genuflects, and takes the monstrance or ciborium. He makes the sign of the cross over the people with the monstrance or ciborium, in silence.


After the blessing the priest or deacon who gave the blessing, or another priest or deacon, replaces the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle and genuflects. Meanwhile the people may sing or say an acclamation, and the minister then leaves.
