TheAstylar Crossis a liturgical object used by theCatholic Church.
It is a cross similar to an altar cross but instead of having a base, it is attached to a decorated or painted pole and is about two meters high. It is used inprocessionsboth outside, for processions through city streets, and inside the church, such as at the beginning ofMasswhen thepriestenters the church and at the end when he leaves, it is usually held by analtar boywho precedes the priest and all the other altar servers, as soon as the priest begins to celebrate Mass it is placed on a base next to the altar so that it is the altar cross, or otherwise (if the altar cross is already there) it is set aside.[
In theRoman riteit is held with the crucifix facing forward, while in theAmbrosian riteit is facing backward toward the priest.
