Are there any Catholic directives (some kind of manual or rubrics) from the 17th to 19th century about what to do/pray/think during Eucharist Adoration?


1 Answer 1


The Saint-Pierre de Solesmes Benedictine abbey—founded by Dom Guéranger, O.S.B., who reestablished, in the 19th century, the Benedictine order and Gregorian chant in France after its destruction by the French Revolution—published a Cantus Selecti ad Benedictionem SS.mi Sacramenti (1957) whose 7th and 8th chapters are entitled Ante Benedictionem and Post Benedictionem, respectively. Most pre-Vatican II missals (such as this one) have a section with benediction prayers and hymns, too.

    The question deals with Eucharistic Adoration, more than Benediction of the Holy Eucharist. Benediction and Eucharistic Adoration may or may not be be part the same liturgical function, according to the circumstances at a particular point in time.
