Luke [9:43-45] Jesus Again Foretells His Death

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 9,43b-45.

While they were all amazed at his every deed, he said to his disciples,
"Pay attention to what I am telling you. The Son of Man is to be handed over to men."
But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was hidden from them so that they should not understand it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.

Commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians, 6


Our sign of glory : the Son of Man delivered into the hands of men
“As for me,” says Saint Paul, “may I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” And Saint Augustine observes: “See how, that where those who are wise in this world believed shame to lie, the apostle Paul finds riches; what seemed folly to them was wisdom and a sign of glory to him” (1 Cor 1:17 f.).
Now everyone assumes distinction from what seems important in their own eyes. People who think themselves great because of their riches, glory in their goods. People who see no glory but in Jesus Christ, set their glory only in Jesus. Of these was the apostle Paul, who said: “I live, yet no longer I, but Christ lives in me” (Gal 2:20). This is why he does not boast in anything except Christ and, above all, the cross of Christ. For all the motives one could possibly have were brought together in this one.
There are people who vaunt their friendship with the great and powerful; Paul needs nothing but Christ's cross to disclose the unmistakable sign of God's friendship. “God proves his love for us in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5:8). No, nothing manifests God's love for us so much as the death of Christ. “Oh, inimitable testimony of love !” exclaims Saint Gregory: “To redeem the slave you delivered up the Son.”

In the Vatican 2 nu-church, the 'sanctuary' is not so much a "Holy of Holies" where the divine sacrifice of the Eucharist takes place, but a stage where a presider & 'ministers' perform. Thus furniture needs to be minimal.

Is that supposed to be an Altar? The Sanctuary?
