Flowers in Lent!

Not quite what is meant by a 'Lenten array'! Following a memorial service, these flowers were donated to Clergy House, and here they stand, magnificently defiant of the season, in the Common Room. This photo was snapped last Friday, before the crucifix was veiled. The crucifix (or more properly the 'corpus') is a fine early ivory work, unaccountably set on perspex by Mgr Barltett!

Do all crucifixes need to be veiled, inside Church and maybe ones at home too?

In theory, all religious images - public and private - should be veiled (although a note of practicality has to be struck!).

Has the huge cross in the cathedral that suspends its self from the ceiling every been covered? Could it ever be covered in the future?

The huge cross in the Cathedral -the Great Rood - cannot be covered becuase of its size (30 feet), and its height above the nave (almost 150 feet!).
