I’m not completely sure what to make of the latest liturgical fad: candlesticks on the main altar. Sometimes two, but usually six. Sometimes, as in this image, it strikes me as an attempted iconostasis. Sometimes, the arrangements just seem to ask for something to tip over.
Maybe it emphasizes the Eucharist as a meal. When not dining in a fast food establishment, people sometimes still light candles at the meal table. Candles at an altar of sacrifice? Bonfire would be more likely, I would think. But what do you think?
Anybody in a parish doing this? Anybody want to do it? Anybody resisting the fad?
