Just attended my local NO youth Mass, by mistake. Forgot it was youth Sunday.
We had someone running up to the altar shouting, to start us off. Alternative 'gifts' were presented before those to be used in the Eucharist (like mobile phones and footballs). Impromptu passages of text inserted into various parts of the liturgy. AND everyone got the chance to put their burdens in the 'burden bucket' when they went to receive Holy Communion. To top it all off, it was our previous (ex?) Bishop who said the Mass, and yes, everyone had to give the 'band' a huge round of applause after it was finished.
The lady at the door who chirped 'That was good, wasn't it?' got my blank stare for about 10 seconds.
Eventually I responded 'I didn't like it'.
Today, for the first time in my life, I have tasted the Orthodox shock at what happens at some of our masses.
Does anyone have a video of a liturgy that is the complete opposite of what I experienced? I need a good liturgy fix. EO, OO, RC, EC - all are appreciated.
Peace and God Bless!
