The Priest and the Tabernacle: not to face God while addressing Him is blasphemy

How would you feel if someone spoke to you like this? 
Fr. Thomasz Jochemczyk, of the Diocese of Albenga-Imperia, Italy, in a lecture at the International Congress for the Reign of Christ the King, presented in dramatic fashion the spiritual/theological and psychological consequences of the priest saying Mass with his back to Our Lord in the Tabernacle. 

Is this not insulting?

Fr. Jochemczyk asks: how would you feel if someone addressed you with their back to you? Is it not an insult? And what are we to make of such a stance - literally - when the priest address Our Lord, turned away from Him? Remember, Jesus Christ is God, He is our King. He is truly and substantially Present in the Tabernacle. 

This is how you address someone 

Indeed every picture does tell a story!
