Image of the cross

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: Should the corpus be facing the cross bearer or the altar as the cross is being carried in the procession at start and end of Mass? I’m seeing it done both ways.


A: I point this out in my book Let Us Pray, in paragraph 159. “The image of the cross faces front.” The directive is found in 128 of the Ceremonial of Bishops.  Christ leads. We follow.
