Ad Orientem in Austria

One of our readers sent in some photos of Cardinal Schönborn who recently visited the the Carmelite convent in Mayerling. The Cardinal concelebrated mass in the Convent Chapel — and apparently, ad orientem is the rule in that convent.

This was followed by a Eucharistic procession to the chapel of the newly restored guest house of the Carmel, which is now to serve as housing for students at the Pontifical Academy in Heiligenkreuz. The newly restored guest house chapel will also have all masses ad orientem.
