“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.”

Light Upon the World
published 24 December 2013 by Richard J. Clark

ASED ON JOHN 1:9: “The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.” Although it was never composed for the liturgy, this piece was originally written in 1989 when I was 19 years old. There have been many different arrangements over the years. This version quotes the Introit for Christmas Day, “Puer natus est nobis.”

Have a blessed Christmas, and know the Light of Christ shines upon you and dwells within you!
