The Catholic Sanctuary

February 2nd, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

I was doing my daily bookstore perusals, and I stumbled onto a little book I just had to order. It’s called “The Catholic Sanctuary and the Second Vatican Council.” I quote from the publisher:

The Catholic Sanctuary. In this very important little pocket booklet, Michael Davies sets forth the amazing thesis that Vatican II and the Post Vatican II legislation did not mandate any changes in the Catholic sanctuary: that is, they did not mandate moving the Tabernacle from the central point in the altar, nor placing a chair in the middle of the sanctuary – or even Mass facing the people. Filled with quotes from the relevant passages of the actual Church documents, this valuable little handbook is a wonderful aid for those trying to educate, discuss and fight a modernist update of the sanctuary in a parish Church. Michael Davies also shows the striking similarity between the Protestant “Reformers”‘ destruction of altars in the 16th century and today’s destruction of altars and sanctuaries by modernist reformers. This booklet is a best seller and an eye opener to un-sanctioned changes in the structure of the sanctuary.

The best part is that it only costs $2.50, plus shipping and handling.

One Response to “The Catholic Sanctuary”

  1. avatar Dr. K says:

    I believe one of the only significant recommendations was that the altar be free standing from the wall. I do not recall, however, there being any requirement for churches to resemble Masonic lodges with 3 chairs elevated in the back of the sanctuary and three candles standing next to the altar (i.e- see here).
