For centuries the altar was always against the wall, and turing it into a N.O. table is a break with tradition and Catholicism.

The altar was moved forward to permit it to be completely encircled while being incensed, which is ideal. To say that every freestanding altar is a `protestant table` is simply blasphemous. Freestanding altars have an ancient history in the church, and are perfectly in line with Catholic Tradition.

It`s this sort of ignorant numskullery which gives traditionalists a bad name.
