Tabernacle, monstrance, chalice, ciboria, paten, corporal, and purificator are items integral to the Blessed Sacrament.
The chalice is the vessel that holds the wine which will become the blood of Christ; the paten and ciboria hold the hosts which will become the body of Christ at the Consecration of the Mass.
The tabernacle is the suitable receptacle in which the Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the Church. Christ remains present in the Blessed Sacrament long after Mass is over. Only the Sacred Host is allowed to be reserved. Tabernacle is derived from the Latin word for tent. It has its origins in the Old Testament Ark of the Covenant.
The monstrance, or ostensorium, is a sacred vessel designed to expose the consecrated host for adoration and benediction. The word’s origin is from the Latin word for “to show.” A monstrance usually is a tall vessel made of precious metal that is placed on the altar.
The luna, which is a piece of glass in the shape of a moon, contains the Blessed Sacrament, previously consecrated. The luna is then placed in the middle of the sunburst of the monstrance.
