They do have the electric lights cranked up though. Earlier today it was awfully gloomy in there.

I would point out, in the monks' defense, that it is perfectly acceptable not to have the altar candles lit outside of Mass.

I note that the Sanctuary light is still lit, and that is the one that matters.

They've just had Mass, and it usually gets left on the altar for a while afterwards - with any luck a monk will be along soon to tidy up (and let Jesus out if we're lucky)!

The altar candles have been renewed and continue to burn even though Mass ended 35 minutes ago, whereas the sanctuary light does not appear to have been replaced.

Pigwidgeon and Ancient Mariner, thank you for your welcome.

18.06 GMT - the monstrance is out (God be praised!), and so are the candles, IYSWIM. I think PeteCanada is right about it being OK not to have the candles lit outside Mass, but I can't quite make out whether or not the sanctuary lamp is lit.........

Oh, and the Shekinah is visible again.......

I am not sure what is on the altar - is it the monstrance turned sideways and a white box? Or a chalice and white box? Or crucifix turned sideways? I have noticed this before and I like to know what I'm noticing.

I think it is just the monstrance, turned sideways, and its shadow. But the quality of the image is very poor!

I think its most likely to be the monstrance sideways. But is Jesus there? Are they waiting for the priest to come and consecrate?

the candles on the altar are burning brightly BUT the candle by the wall seems to have gone out. In this case it would indicate that Jesus is not present and we are waiting for him.

Indeed. Monstrance, not centered on altar and turned sideways with the little door left ajar is, at least at our place, the proper position when waiting for Jesus to emerge from the breadbox.

I have never before seen this view of the monstrance on the Blessed Sacrament Webcam.

May I ask a question. If the sanctuary light is on, is the blessed sacrament ever housed inside the tabernacle within the monstrance?

I don't go to a church where there is exposition of the blessed sacrament but imagine that, following exposition, the sacrament is removed from the monstrance and the sacrament and monstrance are stored separately. Is this correct?

I'm pretty sure the Monstrance is too big to fit in the Aumbry. In earlier times we've seen the monks putting away and the Monstrance has had its little door (Lunette?) open.
Here are some shots from the old chapel (when we had a better close-up view) and about halfway down on the right is a screen grab with the Monstrance open.

Thanks Ann

I had thought from the current picture that the tabernacle was set into the wall in a recess but from your pictures I see that is not the case.

I wonder why the quality of the web cam pictures has deteriorated rather than improved over time?

The monstrance has now disappeared. The altar is bare apart from the four altar candles.

This is addictive... I noticed the monstrance had gone too. I haven't read all of this thread, but I feel like I'm being sucked into some sort of parallel universe...

oh, and in my (limited) experience, the sacrament was only contained in the monstrance during Exposition in the Catholic church I used to attend...

You will be assimilated......resistance is futile....

AFAIK, it is not correct practice to place the Most Blessed Sacrament in the aumbry or tabernacle whilst It is still in the monstrance. The monstrance should only be used when It is solemnly Exposed, and It is housed in a pyx whilst in the aumbry or tabernacle.

Ah, good old Ritual Notes........

Welcome to the blessed sacrament webcam thread Love the You you hide. Keep watching and marvellous things will happen!

Do the Munx have Saturday and Sunday off? If you click on 'Adoration Schedule' on the webcam page, Monday to Friday has various times listed yet Saturday and Sunday are blank.

Sorry Ann I wasn't listening properly. I now see this is a different chapel; different altar, different tabernacle.

Thanks Love the You you hide, for the information re. the separation of the sacrament and the monstrance at times other than exposition.

Looking at the monks' website, I note that the monks don't advertise their webcam as a Blessed Sacrament webcam. They call it a Chapel webcam. This is a helpful realisation, as it helps me not to have too high expectations, helps me not to feel disappointed when the altar is bare, helps me to take what comes with equanimity.

Is the sanctuary light out, or is it just somehow not visible?

It's dim in there...no monstrance....no crucifix... just the four altar lights flickering. Shhhh! He's sleeping!

Jesus isn't there. Hence no sanctury light. One minute the monstrance was there, turned sideways and empty. Next minute it had disappeared. The munx must be having Mass, as we speak, and very soon Jesus will be back.

Yes, I wonder what the Munx get up to at weekends! Presumably they say their Offices as per usual, but maybe they go off and assist in parish churches (as deacons or whatever, as I get the impression none - or neither - of them is an ordained priest).

Nothing's changed except the candles are a little lower. The munx are not at home I think. They've probably gone to church like the rest of us and I like to think they may have been invited out to lunch. They will be bringing Jesus back with them.

There is an unopened book on what I think is the missal stand. It's the first time I've seen this. Hopefully a monk will shortly appear and start reading.

The chapel has retreated! WE are outside in the cheap seats, behind a barrier. Hard to make out anything on the altar.

I tried to do a cut and paste of the pic but it doesn't work.

Well I've not seen it before. Actually its quite interesting - you can see the gong thing at the side and all the seats in the chapel. It looks like we are in pews outside. We couldn't really see Jesus if they brought him out now.

To see the chapel in a wider context was an interesting interlude. Among other reflections, I'm left wondering which side of the barrier the monks sit.

Do they worship with the congregation on what looked like pews?

The middle part of the barrier looked rather flimsy, like a piece of material that could easily be moved.

I seem to recall seeing several seats placed along the 'east' wall of the chapel i.e. to either side of the altar. I would assume that the Priest and the Munx sit there, with the Munx assisting perhaps as Deacon, Server and everything else. No disrespect, but the liturgy is probably fairly minimalist.

At any rate, I'm glad the view has returned to normal. When the candles are all lit, the chapel looks homely and welcoming by comparison.

(Yesterday evening though, the view of the altar became increasingly truncated. First, only the three rear candles were visible, and then, none at all).

Fortunately all the candles are visible this morning.

Not sure if this is the normal view (two pews and the breeze block screen in the foreground) but what I had initially thought was a sideways monstrance and a plant pot turns out to be celebrant... [Hot and Hormonal]

Not a great turn out today, it has to be said.

Sorry for the double post, but the priest has a zimmer frame! How exciting! (Well, I would be excited.) He's distributing Communion atm, I guess adoration will follow Mass.

[ETA: Bah, not the priest's zimmer frame, but belonging to one of the communicants. Not quite as exciting any more.]

My first out-loud laugh of the day. Thank you.

Yes, the walker seems to belong to a little-ol'-lady who is at Mass everytime. Actually, it might be a little-ol'-man, I can't tell.

And I've never seen a bigger crowd than what was present today. After Mass, they just disappear, and outten the lights. [Snore]

Yes, indeed - 18.13 GMT here in the UK, and, having just returned home after a hard day battling the wind and rain, I log on to find Our Lord in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar duly Exposed in the monstrance and waiting to be Adored. How lovely!

Venite adoremus, Dominum!

It's also a Good Thing that the Munx have their regular congregation - I hope they all find their Mass uplifting spiritually, and don't mind us watching them........
