My church has no crucifix in the altar area, and this has been bugging me. Behind the altar there is a statue of the risen Christ. During most Masses, the processional crucifix is stood up behind the altar until the end, but sometimes our priest does not do this (when he is the only one in the procession.) I seem to remember reading somewhere in the GIRM that a crucifix, showing Christ crucified, must be present and in clear view in the altar area, but I can’t remember where that was. Should I mention this to someone at my church, and if so, what documentation should I offer to support my cause?
