The blog Nimisi Dominus uses a Next Generation Star Trek episode to make a serious point about the Mass in general and ad orientem in particular.
We got a new priest in our parish a couple of years back and one of the first things he did was resort to ad orientum posture for the Confiteor, Gloria and Credo. While some grumbled, I was elated. Recently he’s been using incense at some Masses. At this rate, I dare to hope that he might revert to the ye olde Tridentine Rite in a few years.
That is my fervent prayer at any rate.
