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.

A Visual Chronicle of Parish Life: Day 2
published 25 February 2014 by Gwyneth Holston

ODAY’S PAINTING is by Jose Gallegos y Arnosa. He was a Spanish painter who particularly excelled at representing the flash of sumptuous fabric against dark interiors.

I particularly like his painting, “The Choirboys” because it captures the matter-of-fact obliviousness that young altarboys frequently display. Also, I love the brushwork he used in depicting the banner and inlay work along the top of the painting. Click on the image to view it larger.
