Vatican     HOLY SEE REJECTS SOME CLAIMS OF PREFERRED WAY TO CELEBRATE MASS
In a letter to a US bishop, the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments has rejected arguments that priests should give preference to Eucharistic Prayer 1 and should stand at the altar with their back to the people when they celebrate Mass.
   The letter, responding to inquiries by Bishop David E. Foley of Birmingham, Alabama, was sent to all US bishops and was made public on Tuesday.
