I took this phot this morning at the Duomo in Napoli at Mass in their side Chapel dedicated to Saint Januraius. The Mass was ad orientem at the ancient magnificent altar. Ad Orientem is clearly an options for us today!
Pope Francis has approved the revised Anglican Use or Rite Mass. It allows for archaic English for the Mass according to the 1662Anglican Prayerbook as well as modern English but even more formal than our glorious new English translation!
But the real bombshell that bodes well for future revisions to the OF Mass allowing EF elements is that the new Ordinariate Missal allows these options now and this approved by Pope Francis!
What are these EF options?
1. Prayers at the Foot of the Altar!
2. The EF Offertory Prayers!
3. The Last Gospel!
Keep in mind the Ordinariate Revised calendar has many EF elements restored too , like Septuagesima and ember days!
And ad orientem is clearly the preferred option!
