The kids explain it all

Fr. Dwight Longenecker had an interesting discussion about the ad orientem posture with some of the students at his school after Mass. In part:

"You don't feel slighted because I have turned my back to you? You sure I haven't hurt your feelings?"

Laughter all around. "You're not that good looking anyway Father."

Okay, the rest of it may not be quite as funny, but it's at least as informative. This generation really is different than their parents, the protestations of a few notwithstanding.
