Wikipedia source: In the Catholic liturgy, the econopée is the veil covering the tabernacle where the consecrated hosts are found. It can be broken down according to the different colors of the liturgical times. For Catholics, it is one of the signs that manifests the real presence of Christ, because it symbolically recalls the tent of Exodus that housed the Ark of the Covenant, symbol of the presence of God. In many churches it is no longer used, especially because it hides a door decorated with biblical scenes or symbolic motifs
