Your TV Mass
Question from Ruthven E Jackie on 8/8/2008:

Hello,

Peace for the heart!

I recently read in the GIRM that there should only be one cross in the sanctuary either on the Altar or next to it but I noticed that you always have two during Mass on TV. Can you explain why for me please?

Shalom, Mr. Ruthven Jackie.

Answer by David Gregson on 9/29/2008:

The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (308) implies a single crucifix, namely one set on or near the altar. This wouldn't preclude, however, the entrance of a processional cross into the sanctuary, which is (I presume) the second cross you refer to.
