Ad Orientem

Over at the New Liturgial movement we see pictures of the Holy Father celebrating the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord ad orientem. A few years ago a former priest of ours referred to this as " celebrating Mass with his back to the people." I would like to offer a different perspective: Today the Holy Father celebrated Mass standing united in prayer with the people facing our Lord.
