Altar Crosses

"In this way we obey the ancient call to prayer: "Conversi ad Dominum," Turn towards the Lord! [...] Moving the altar cross to the side to give an uninterrupted view of the priest is something I regard as one of the truly absurd phenomena of recent decades. Is the cross disruptive during Mass? Is the priest more important than the Lord? This mistake should be corrected as soon as possible; it can be done without further rebuilding. The Lord is the point of reference. He is the rising sun of history."

~Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, The Spirit of the Liturgy, "Time and Space in the Liturgy."
