“How can we enter into this interior disposition except by turning physically—all together, priest and faithful—toward the Lord who comes, toward the East symbolized by the apse where the cross is enthroned? The outward orientation leads us to the interior orientation that it symbolizes. Since apostolic times, Christians have been familiar with this way of praying. It is not a matter of celebrating with one’s back to the people or facing them, but toward the East, «ad Dominum», toward the Lord.”
— Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Vatican's Congregation for Divine Worship (October 2016)

published 11 October 2014 by Aurelio Porfiri

AFFIRM AND DEFEND the elitist nature of sacred art. It is not that we want to exclude people; rather we want to conduct them onto higher peaks where—despite our deep indignity—sometimes God allows us to abide.
