Fr. Richard Leonard, S.J. And Glass Doors On Tabernacles

This piece is from Fr. Z at WDTPRS, below is an excerpt of Father John's comments.
The Precious Blood may not be reserved except in very rare cases when a tiny amount from Mass may be kept for Communion of sick people who absolutely cannot take even the smallest amount of solids or gluten, etc.Otherwise, if a tabernacle had a door made from something that was a strong as the glass that goes into military vehicles in Afghanistan, then I suppose it would be okay.  In any event, it should be veiled.  The veil, not the sanctuary lamp, is the best sign of the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.
