Regarding the authentic interpretation of canons 1367 CIC and 1442 CCEO, the following points should be kept in mind:
In an expression as lapidary as it is rich and pregnant, the Second Vatican Council said: “ In the most blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church” 2e Vaticaans Concilie, Decreet, Over het leven en dienst van de priester, Presbyterorum Ordinis (7 dec 1965), 5. And the Wetboek
Codex Iuris Canonici
Codex van het Canonieke recht
(25 januari 1983)
summarizes the Council’s abundant teaching on the subject and the Church’s perennial doctrine, asserting: “The most august sacrament is the blessed Eucharist, in which Christ the Lord himself is contained, offered and received, and by which the Church continually lives and grows “ (Wetboek
Codex Iuris Canonici
Codex van het Canonieke recht
(25 januari 1983)
); therefore “ Christ’s faithful are to hold the blessed Eucharist in the highesthonour...; they should receive the sacrament with great devotion and frequently, and should reverence it with the greatest adoration “ (Wetboek
Codex Iuris Canonici
Codex van het Canonieke recht
(25 januari 1983)

Therefore we can understand the care and efforts of the Church’s Pastors to see that this priceless Gift is deeply and devoutly loved, safeguarded and surrounded with that worship which expresses in the best way humanly possible our faith in Christ’s real presence — body, blood, soul and divinity — under the Eucharistic Species, even after the Holy Sacrifice has been celebrated.
