Traditional Altar Crucifix

The Altar Crucifix is placed upon the altar is a reminder to the congregation and the priest of the believed nature of the Eucharist as the actual body of Christ; the altar itself symbolically represents the way to Golgotha. It is for this reason that Roman Law decrees it necessary to have the crucifix upon the altar whenever Mass is celebrated. Specifically, it is placed directly in between the Candlesticks in such a way that it is conveniently seen by the people.
