How can one process with the Body when it should have been eaten at Mass?

Mass in an Orthodox Church?
This looks more like RC. Do the Orthodox display the body of Christ in a monstrance like the RC?

The adoration is not mentioned there...
I see, thanks. Fr. Benedict Groeschel once entered a church with an Armenian priest and genuflected towards the tabernacle. According to Fr. Benedict, the Armenian expressed the beauty of the gesture and wished it was a practice in the Armenian church as well. When Catholic I would often spend an hour in Eucharistic adoration; would be neat to know if this is practiced in Western Rite Orthodoxy.

Western Rite church.
Sorry for the derailment.
I’m apparently oblivious to differences of the Western Rite compared to Eastern Rite. I did some quick reading to get a little more familiar. The similarities in the Western Rite Liturgy are very close to the Latin Rite of RC except it’s in the vernacular. I wish there was one locally because then it would be easier to convince my wife to convert to Orthodoxy. It’s the only obstacle in my conversion. The nearest one is a few hundred miles from me.

Ukrainian Greek Catholic bishops from Poland. Frankly, I'd never say they are bishops (the one of the left ok, a priest, the rest even this not)...
