Tabernacles / Key Boxes
Tabernacles are liturgical furnishing used for the exclusive reservation of the Blessed Sacrament. The Blessed Sacrament is the bread and wine used during communion that is the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. The church tabernacle is kept locked at all times to ensure the purity and sacredness of the contents within. During the early days of Christianity, tabernacles were kept hidden within the homes of followers for fear of prosecution, reserving portions of the Blessed Sacrament for private use and home services. Most of today's designs are intended for proud display and include beautiful depictions of religious scenes or detailed symbols on the exterior of the box. The interiors are designed to resist moisture and keep the contents fresh.
