Homily on facing Eastward

Ma Beck, of Ward Wide Web, a regular commenter on this blog, has posted a homily Ascension and the East given by Fr Dennis Kolinski CRSJC, at the St John Cantius Church in Chicago about the priest facing Eastwards for the celebration of Mass. It was given on the feast of the Ascension which is a very appropriate occasion to reflect on the matter. The homily is an excellent spiritual summary of the significance of the priest and people facing together towards the East in anticipation of the second coming of Christ.

Hearing all this about St John Cantius makes me want to go and visit Chicago.
