I have some questions about so-called ‘benedictine arrangement’.
Before asking questions, I want to say sorry for my poor English.
Is it acceptable to have two crucifixes on the sanctuary?
In general, many churches place a large crucifix on the wall behind the altar, but is it possible to put another smaller crucifix on the altar for the priest? Some say yes, others say no, Which one is correct?
If it is allowed, What size of crucifix is appropriate?
For example, If the crucifix on the wall behind the altar is 60 to 80 inches, Would it be appropriate if the altar crucifix is 30-35 inches?
I aware that many bishops don’t like ad orientem.
But, Can bishops even ban ‘Benedictine Arrangement’ or altar altar crucifix?
Thank you for reading my questions!
