Altar Stone

Altar Stone

A solid piece of natural stone, consecrated by a bishop, large enough to hold the Sacred Host and chalice. It is inserted into or placed on the surface of a structure which answers the purpose of an altar, when the whole altar is not consecrated. Sometimes the whole table ( mensa) takes the place of the smaller altar-stone. It is called a portable altar.
