In another entry there is discussion of the reintroduction of ad orientem worship in a parish.
A priest made this comment:
it helped VERY much when laypeople actually gave me positive comments about attending Mass ad orientem.
I put to you a couple questions:
First, priests and lay people…. what was your impression of ad orientem worship when you encountered it for the first time?
Certainly priests and lay people will have very different comments to make about this.
Let’s hear both.
Did you have problems with it? Preferences?
Second, if ad orientem worship has been introduced in your parish, how do you perceive others are adjusting to it?
Was there a fight? Did it go smoothly?
Down the line somewhere, I will give my impressions of ad orientem versus versus populum.
