Cardinal Sarah Calls for Ad Orientem Worship as the Norm in the Mass

Here is a translation of a recent interview with His Eminence Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, in which he advocates a general return to worship ad orientem. The interview was originally published online by French journal Famille Chrétienne; the translation linked above by Christine Broesamle was published on Monday the website of the National Catholic Register.

I would recommend also a blog article written by Christ Carstens, the editor of the Adoremus Bulletin, in which he comments on why this call is so important. (h/t Adam Bartlett of Illuminare Publications).

I have nothing to add myself except, if only this would happen...
