"There is nothing in the rubrics or Ritus Servandus (Order of Celebration) of the 1965 Mass requiring the Eucharistic Prayer to be said facing the people."

How to celebrate Mass "ad orientem"
In response to the ridiculous insinuations made by some (including even high ranking officials in the Church) that ad orientem worship is somehow only a part of the Traditional Latin Mass or “extraordinary form” and that re-introducing this in the new Mass would therefore be some unjust “mixing of the forms,” we stress that neither the Second Vatican Council, nor any Pope, nor any official mandate from the Church has ever directed the priest to face the people during the whole of the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy.
"In the liturgy of the Roman Rite there may be no greater visual representation of discontinuity than the near universal abandonment of ad orientem Masses in the Novus Ordo."
