Side altars are now frowned upon??? Ok, they are not used as much, but frowned upon?? Where's the reference for this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:32, 11 September 2009 (UTC)


The following is stated:

With regard to relics of saints, it says: Canon 1237 §2. The ancient tradition of placing relics of martyrs or other saints under a fixed altar is to be preserved, according to the norms given in the liturgical books.

- but it doesn't make clear whether or not relics are mandatory in a fixed altar. Francis Hannaway 19:29, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
