Q: Could you point me in a direction as to documents/teachings relating to where in the church the tabernacle should be placed,  Previously the tabernacle was in a side chapel.  The tabernacle has since been moved to the front of the church behind the altar and under the Cross.  I know why  the tabernacle was moved post Vatican II, but has there been some change, some thought process that would suggest a move back to the altar


A: I have presented this topic in paragraphs 127 and 128 of my book Let Us Pray. That section summarizes the legislation and makes some pastoral commentary.
