(UPDATED) The Benedictine Altar Arrangement Comes to Sto. Domingo Church, Quezon City

UPDATE June 22, 2011: In my recent visits to Sto. Domingo I've noticed that this great church has reverted to its previous arrangements for the crucifix and candles (with the processional cross located at the side of the altar and the candles placed upon the steps leading up to the altar). I guess even the "Benedictine altar arrangement" is still too controversial for the Philippines...

A Roman-style antependium appears as well! A crucifix is not in the sanctuary area, though, in line with the practice of some Filipino parishes during Eastertide.

The "before" picture comes from a beautiful blog post on this church by my good friend Fr. Abraham Arganiosa CRS, and the "after" pictures come from the Facebook account of "Paulus Maximus".
