EUCHARISTIC DEVOTION LAGGING

"CIL" Netherlands Correspondent ACALL for a renewal of .'tabernacle devotion " — thanksgiving after Communion, spiritual Communion, private adoration, Benediction, Forty Hours' Adoration, etc.—was made this week in a joint Pastoral Letter by the Neherlands Bishops. While praising the present-day revaluation of the Mass as the highest and most real symbol of our unity with Christ, the Bishops regret that a certain resistance is growing against other forms of Eucharistic devotion. The Pastoral said that it , was sometimes argued that the socalled "tabernacle devotion" was not part of the life in the early ost a weapon Church; that it was first and fore most against the denial of the real presence and that it was an impediment to Christian unity. "We should, however," the Bishops said, "abandon a precious good if we yielded to the tendency to express our Eucharistic life exclusively in the liturgical celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice. The liturgical celebration of

m

the community will only then have its full and proper value when it is given our personal assent and is continued by us in our personal life."

The Bishops stressed that in all these Eucharistic devotions the link with the Eucharistic sacrifice should .be maintained.
