I was watching the Corpus Christi procession on EWTN yesterday and had a couple of questions about what I saw.
(Please forgive my ignorance for I am not Catholic. Nor is any disrepect intended.)
The priest carried a monstrance into the church and subsequently took the host from that monstrance and placed it into the tabernacle. At the end, the monstrance above the alter was uncovered.
Is it proper to have only one monstrace exposed at any one time?
Is the host in the monstrance above the altar replaced periodically?
