What season of the liturgical year - or feast, perhaps? - would you guess it is by the way this altar is presented?
Again we see the nice floral arrangement...little white table cloth... Hmm. There's also a red thingy on the ambo...
That altar would look much less like a picnic table, and would be much more imposing as an altar if it had a floor-length antependium. And never any flowers in front of it.
But anyway...have you made your guess as to the liturgical season?
The answer (drum roll): These photos were taken just a couple of days ago...at the beginning of Holy week. Passiontide.
This is Lent. Even in the Novus Ordo, it is the rule of the Church that "the altar should not be decorated with flowers".
And where the heck is the PURPLE?
There is nothing in these photos that would lead one to believe they were taken during Lent.
Is it really that hard?
You know, if Mass is celebrated ad orientem the problem of making the altar nothing more than a backdrop for a floral arrangement is solved. You can't have a big floral arrangement in the place where the priest must stand to offer the sacrifice of the Mass!
