Charismatic retreat preacher Fr. Franklin D’Souza apparently has no issue with resurrexifixes substituting for the Crucifix in the churches he preaches at
The “resurrexifix” or icon of the Risen Christ is fast beginning to replace the crucifix in our churches.
According to the rubrics of the liturgy, a small crucifix on the altar is mandatory in case there isn’t the traditional large one on the wall behind the altar. In some parishes/Masses, even that is not used, i.e. EVEN WHEN there is no large one on the wall which is visible to all; see the list of related files on the last page.
The cross, the Bible says, is “the power and wisdom of God”. Pentecostal “Christians” do not venerate the crucifix as Catholics do. Our exorcists use the crucifix to evict demons from people.
When priests like Fr. Franklin D’Souza equate with Catholic ministers — or elevate — Protestant pastors by co-preaching ecumenical (“inter-denominational”) retreats* to Catholics, it is a matter of progression till the crucifix is sidelined or abandoned completely.
