Front and Center - the Tabernacle
#12

I think such designs were sometimes done in such a spirit, more so as the original liturgical movement lost steam, but the idea of "singularity of image" was most certainly not Protestant. I disagree with it in that I think a "multiplicity of images" can actually enhance the focus on and appreciation for the Sacrifice--for example, the crucifix, tabernacle, altar, priest, and Sacrifice, all in one line of sight surrounded by images of the Saints and the heavenly host all bring forth and make more visible the underlying realities of the Eucharist.  But wanting the sacrifice on the altar to be even more the focus of worship is not Protestant (even if the means taken to do so may have been misguided), since it was intended to lead to a hyperfocus on the one thing Protestants traditionally consider the most blasphemous.

At what point do we realize we made a horrible mistake and do an about face?
