Crucifix on Good Friday

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  Should a large fixed crucifix behind the altar be covered on Good Friday (it was not covered on the Sunday before the Fifth Sunday of Lent…)?

A: The missal’s introductory paragraph 3 for Good Friday says that the altar should not have a cross on it. By extension, if the cross used for mass is on the wall, it should be removed or covered.
