Question from Dora Lauer on 3/25/2008:
many of the churches in the diocese of ... are replacing the crucifix with the risen Christ in the sanctuaries....is this right? Thank you
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 3/25/2008:
The liturgical norms require that a crucifix (with corpus) be on or near the altar. An image of the risen Christ may also be displayed, but this should not be in place of the crucifix.
