So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

The internet is abuzz: Bishop Conley to celebrate Mass Ad Orientem for Advent & Christmas

Bishop Conley/Diocese of Lincoln

Many blogs are reporting Bishop Conley's plan to celebrate Mass ad orientem.
During the Sundays of Advent, the priests in the Cathedral of the Risen Christ will celebrate the Mass ad orientem. With the People of God, the priest will stand facing the altar, and facing the crucifix. When I celebrate midnight Mass on Christmas, I will celebrate ad orientem as well. This may take place in other parishes across the Diocese of Lincoln as well. 
In the ad orientem posture at Mass, the priest will not be facing away from the people. He will be with them—among them, and leading them—facing Christ, and waiting for his return.—Bishop Conley.

Four out of five swings of the thurible for His Excellency!

Bishop Conley is Bishop of the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska.
