"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Bishop Morlino: NOT 'ad orientem' ... but 'versus populum' ... and wearing Novus Ordo vestments.

I couldn't help but notice that in this photo at least,
Bishop Morlino is facing the congregation,
and NOT talking to the wall.*

h/t Badger Cat.


  1. He's the bishop. Following the Pope's footsteps, slumming is part of his job. What?

    1. I think this is his Cathedral - might be wrong.

    2. Oh wait - you mean Fr. Z?

  2. No, I mean he would go whatever parish and say Mass in whichever form, facing either direction wearing a chasuble of some kind.
