It should be borne in mind that there is no preference expressed in the liturgical legislation for either “versus populum” or “ad orientem.” Since both positions enjoy the favor of law, the legislation may not be invoked to say that one position or the other accords more closely with the mind of the Church.

N THIS WONDERFUL talk, Dr. Scott Hahn admits to sometimes being bored at Mass and explains why. He also talks about how his daughter “doesn’t want to go to Heaven.”

You owe it to yourself to watch the entire presentation (an hour), but if you don’t have time, make sure to at least watch the following brief excerpt:

Incidentally, at the very beginning of the talk, Dr. Hahn praises Adam Bartlett, who had just given a beautiful talk on Sacred music.
