Ad Orientem in the Ordinariate?

Rumour and whatnot about the coming Anglican Ordinariate liturgy is very promising. And now a public statement from a very well-informed source:


From the Tablet:

Masses celebrated by priests in the ordinariate are likely to be ad orientem, according to one of its leaders. While the liturgy for the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham has yet to be approved by the Holy See, Mgr Andrew Burnham said the Congregation for Divine Worship “is likely to commend eastward celebration, when the dynamic of the building suggests it”. Mgr Burnham also said that it may also recommend kneeling at mention of the Incarnation during the Creed.
