Piero? Is that you? or People Look East

Found at the Vatican website:

“The Byzantine Divine Liturgy, like that of all the Eastern Churches, is celebrated facing East. The priest and all the faithful look to the East, whence Christ will come again in glory. The priest intercedes before the Lord for his people; he walks at the head of the people towards the encounter with the Lord. At different moments the priest turns to the people: for the proclamation of the Gospel, for the dialogue preceding the anaphora, for the communion with the holy gifts, and for all the blessings. These symbolize moments in which the Lord himself comes forth to meet his people.” – From the Office of Papal Liturgical Celebrations | Apostolic Journey of His Holiness Benedict XVI to Turkey | November 28 – December 1, 2006 | † Piero Marini

Will wonders ever cease?

I think there is an expert on the Byzantine Liturgy -- or all things Byzantine -- at Brown University. Might be one at Notre Dame, too.
