When Christ gave the bread, he did not say, "This is the symbol of my body," but, "This is my body." In the same way, when he gave the cup of his blood he did not say, "This is the symbol of my blood," but, "This is my blood."
— Theodore, Bishop of Mopsuestia, writing in the 5th Century

Major Media Outlet Re: “Ad Orientem”
published 12 August 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

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:
