Vatican     HOLY SEE TO ISSUE INSTRUCTION ON CHURCH TABERNACLES
The Vatican is expected to rule today on whether the tabernacle should be placed behind the main altar or in a side chapel in Catholic churches.
   The long-awaited ruling will resolve one of the most contentious disputes in the post-Second Vatican Council Church and will have a major impact on church design around the world.
   It will be especially welcomed by the bishops of the United States, who will incorporate the new norms into a new document on Church art and architecture, which they are expected to issue this year.
