Vatican     TABERNACLE 'AT THE CENTRE', SAYS INSTRUCTION
A Vatican instruction which recommends the placing of the Blessed Sacrament tabernacle in a central position in churches is to be published along with the third Latin edition of the Roman Missal in early June
   A Vatican official said this week that the revised instruction, dated 20 April 20, to mark the institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper, emphasises the need to show "special respect" for the tabernacle, urging that it be "close to the centre of attention" in a church.
   While the instruction is not expected to say the tabernacle should be returned to a position near the central altar, it will say that if it is kept in a separate place, it must be in a suitably special Blessed Sacrament chapel.
