“Although the Mass contains much instruction for the faithful, it has nevertheless not seemed expedient to the fathers that it be celebrated everywhere in the vernacular. The holy synod commands pastors and everyone who has the care of souls to explain frequently during the celebration of the Masses, either themselves or through others, some of the things that are read in the Mass, and among other things to expound some mystery of this most Holy Sacrifice, especially on Sundays and feastdays.”
— Council of Trent, XII:8 (1562)

Major Media Outlet Re: “Ad Orientem”

208 Robert Cardinal Sarah Y FRIEND emailed me a URL link to an article by Ms. Claire Chretien. Published by a major media outlet, the article deals with recent statements by Robert Cardinal Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, with regard to “ad orientem” in the Ordinary Form.

Specifically, Ms. Chretien cites several Watershed articles, including this one (which really caught fire online, being “cut & pasted” to many Catholic blogs). What I appreciate is that she properly credits our website.

Here’s an excerpt:
