“In my capacity as the prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, I continue to remind all that the celebration toward the East (versus orientem) is authorized by the rubrics of the missal, which specify the moments when the celebrant must turn toward the people. A particular authorization is, therefore, not needed to celebrate Mass facing the Lord.”

Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Rom. 12:15

Dr. Ronda’s examples: Wrote an e-mail to my far away sister telling her how eager I am to see more of her after my move to Los Angeles. I wrote to very dear new friends thanking them for a year’s companionship. I e-mailed a distant godchild and invited him to visit me when I am nearer this next 8 months. I wrote to the Watershed leaders to thank them for this time of sharing their entries and my gratitude for their hosting my blog.

Your examples:

Prayer: Dear Holy Family, I think you were a hearth of love to all in your neighborhood as well as visiting families and friends. May no one among my family and friends ever feel that I am distancing myself from them by being “too busy” to relate.
