This collection from approved sources of the rites and texts for use during the Solemn Exposition of the Holy Eucharist is so arranged that it may be used for one or several days, according to local custom or pastoral need. In order to provide periods for liturgical prayer during the period of exposition three services are provided: The Liturgy of the Hours during the Period of Exposition, Eucharistic Services of Prayer and Praise, and Celebration of the Eucharist during the Period of Exposition. Two forms for the Closing Celebration for the Solemn Exposition are also given, one taking place during Mass, and a second when Mass is not celebrated.
A listing of suggested Scripture readings, some optional litanies, and music resources are given in the appendices. Music from Michael Joncas heads a wide selection of music. This is a necessary resource for those responsible for planning solemn expositions.
