Our parish has exposition of the Eucharist during 24x7 perpetual adoration. However, there are many hours during the day that the exposed Eucharist is left unattended.
My understanding is that this should not be permitted, however it has been explained to me by members of my church that the pastor is exercising “pastoral privilege”.
Can you refer me to reading material on pastoral privilege? I was surprised that it actually applies in this situation.
