Turning towards the Lord: Robert Cardinal Sarah at Sacra Liturgia 2016

Many of our readers will have heard that Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, asked yesterday for a return to a unified posture of both priest and people, turned together toward the Lord.

For too long, a misunderstanding of the need for mutual affirmation of priest and people has “closed the circle” of the liturgy, effectively leaving no place open for God in se.

The transcript should be available by next week at the Sacra Liturgia facebook site. 

Thank you, Your Eminence, for your leadership!
