We have some problems to-day with balancing the Mass as a community gathering and as a sacrificial act of worship. What can be done? I think it is fairly simple: when addressing the people, the Priest looks at them.
When addressing the Father, he lifts his eyes to heaven, as Jesus did. And when addressing Jesus Himself at Communion time, he looks at the Eucharist on the Altar.
- Rev. Fr. Tim Deeter
