Ad Orientem in Venice

By way of Accion Liturgica we learn that the Patriarch of Venice, Mgr. Francesco Moraglia, recently celebrated Mass in the Ordinary Form at the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute on November 21st, the feast of Madonna della Salute, at the famous high altar of the same. That means that the Mass was also celebrated ad orientem -- which is always a welcome development.
