Facing East: A Litrugical Practice That Needs Revisiting?
Category Lenten Lecture
Year: 2010
Time: 54 minutes
Pope Benedict XVI points out that Christians find Christ in the symbol of the rising sun. Praying toward the east means that we go to meet the coming Christ. The liturgy, turned toward the east, effects entry in procession toward the New Heaven and the New Earth. It is the prayer of the pilgrim in hope.

Some may question what a common turning toward the east would do to that which has so often been emphasized since Vatican II, that is, active participation, yet does active participation necessarily mean something external?

What is the essential core of common worship? How might turning toward the east influence this core? This presentation is meant to provide a balanced evaluation of liturgical worship in light of enriching practice today.
