"We must have the blessed Sacrament here"

In the Roman Catholic Church, the blessed Sacrament is the name given to the consecrated bread and wine (which are seen as representing the body and blood of Christ) used during Holy Communion (the Eucharist).

Some of the consecrated elements may be kept and stored in a locked cabinet known as a tabernacle.
