Before I go offending anyone, I want to say that I am merely wondering if what is shown in this video is real.  Do they actually do this in some Roman Catholic Churches?  I have seen women distribute communion, female altar servers, and other oddities, but never this.  Has the pope said anything about this? 

Watching this makes me want to cry.

I think the choice of the word "silly" will be offensive to some.  A better choice would have been  liturgical abuses.  And the dear Lord knows there are lots of abuses.

1) Of course it's real
2) The Pope has spoken about this a number of times (he's against it)
3) You're not the only one who wants to cry upon seeing this.

Possibly some of them may be Episcopalian or liberal former Catholic schismatics with no jurisdiction.

But yeah, sometimes stuff like this happens. Usually it's more boring lame stuff that happens, though. Which is typical.

In the Roman Catholic Church, these things can and should be reported to the bishop, whose job it is to quash them and replace the parish personnel responsible.

There were flare-ups of these types of incidents from the 1960s to about the 1980s. There's a good book about it, which I've mentioned before- "Ungodly Rage," by Donna Steichen. Since then, there have been many new bishops appointed, who for the most part have cracked down on liturgical abuse. Every once in a while, you hear about another embarrassment like this slipping through the cracks. I hope for the RCC's sake that when the new liturgical manual is introduced later this year, the commitment to proper enforcement will be renewed.

Perhaps part of what our problem is is that, when devout Christians see these abuses occurring within our Church, they decide to just leave the Church rather than remaining in it and actually working to change it from the inside. If more people didn't split and actually did something to end these abuses our Church would be much better.

Oh I know what you meant. It's just we've gone over this topic of liturgical abuses in the Catholic Church about a zillion times, and I really don't see any point to rehashing all that is "wrong" with the Catholic Church. It is hurtful to our Catholic friends, and doesn't aid in terms of charity or developing relationships with the Orthodox.

And I'm in a silly mood, and it seemed like a good excuse to insert some Python into the conversation.

So I apologize if I offended you.

Actually, Trevor, Pope Benedict has a long history as a liturgical scholar and he is most definitely working to reform the so-called 'reforms.' He has written a book entitled "The Spirit of the Liturgy".  http://www.amazon.com/Spirit-Liturgy-Benedict-XVI/dp/0898707846/

You may find this article of interest and it may make you feel better regarding the direction your former church MAY be taking.  http://ceciliaschola.org/notes/benedictonmusic.html

Contrary to what some of us Orthodox may say, the Pope alone can not change everything in Catholicism by waving a wand.

So now that you've both insulted the other's group, does that cancel the insult out?

I mean, really, do you think that either one of you have "won" anything?

Ooooh Isa insulted the Vatican. Feel the buuuuuurn. I'm sure that will have our Catholic friends rushing to Constantinople!

The fact that more and more threads are looking like this makes me want to find a forum on chocolate pudding. After all, there's got to be more charity on a forum about chocolate pudding than a forum that is supposed to be discussing Christ and His Church.

I think you would be surprised. Just kidding. (I do want pudding now, and I hate pudding)

I agree. I wonder why people need to make the same derogatory comments on every thread. I'll bet anyone, dollars to doughnuts, that God is going to give us a slap on the wrist for spending as much time as we did arguing.

But on the other hand, I feel like we beat up our "own kind" too much, you know? We have standards for people in our faith, but I feel our energy would be spent better elsewhere.


And sorry Trevor, but I kind of LOLed when you were talking about shocking things such as female altar servers! And females handing out the Eucharist! Oh noes! I may have grown up with that, but there are way, way more strange things in the Christian church than that. Please watch Jesus Camp and report back.

(Full disclosure: I was an altar server for the RCC for 4 years. I am a womynz. I like how the Orthodox church does the male servers, although I am very slightly miffed that I can never go into the sanctuary. But I think God has more to worry about than female altar servers. My two cents.)

Talking about silly Masses. Here in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles under the former Cardinal Mahony, several parishes had a special children's pretend liturgy where Kindergarden and first graders were served grape juice and Oreo Cookies as pretend-communion. When they reached the age of reason (7), they complained that they would rather be at the pretend liturgy where they could eat real cookies that tasted so much better.

Oh that really would be heaven. I mean, when they talk about manna from heaven in the Old Testament, I am convinced it was baklava they were referring to, because baklava is soo good, it MUST be made by the hands of the angels. Now Chocolate baklava, YOWZER! I can only imagine how delicious that would be!

Yes, indeed. If there were a challenge for everyone to write 10 sentences in which they tried to convert someone to their faith, I doubt many of us would get to the end accurately and in a spirit of peace.   Cry

Then again, pudding is yummy!  Smiley

This guy isn't even a renegade priest. And worse, he's a likely candidate for the papacy after Benedict XVI:

Watching this makes me want to cry.

Then why do you watch this nonsense?

When there are millions of reverential masses said in the Roman rite and ritual all over the globe every day, I can only think of one reason why some people obsess on the lunatic fringe....

I did not click that link. Why would I want to disturb my inner peace?
I witnessed so much liturgical abuse while I was a Catholic as I had to bear with Cardinal Mahony's Liturgical Revolution.

We are called to pray unceasingly. Viewing such links are not conducive to prayer.

Maybe the problem is that you tolerate them?

LOL...more likely I don't ever encounter them.  They are insignificant in the main.  There are some egregious bishops who have caused serious difficulties in their sees over the years but even in those worst cases there are more good and reverential liturgies than fringe liturgies, because even heterodox bishops ordain good and orthodox priests.  I don't come anywhere near these dioceses in my life so "toleration" is not part of the equation.

But that takes nothing from the fact that there are MILLIONS of reverential masses celebrated daily in the Roman rite and ritual all over the world.

What you are having a hissy fit about gets entirely lost in a sunami of orthodox and reverent liturgies.

That is not to detract from the fact that where things are not well ordered, real people suffer.

But it is still minuscule in number.

Although there are liturgical abuses that take place. There are also people like those mentioned in the thread below that try to bring back some respect/awe.

They don't, when they find out about them. When these are reported to the bishop, they are generally stopped and often the priest is removed. It remains up to someone in the parish to contact the bishop. The RCC church is widespread enough that it's difficult to root out these types of people until after the incident has already happened. Even the most dedicated of archbishops can't be everywhere at once.  Undecided

The Novus Ordo is one big liturgical abuse. It should be abrogated and the Tridentine which is real Catholic Worship brought back.

I'm sorry that you feel that way.  I attend the so called "Novus Ordo" every week and on holy days and find great solice and devotion in it.  On the other hand, I attended a Tridentine Mass in the past and found the experience to be cold and scary. The only thing I ever got out of my experience with the Mass "of all time" was a whole lot of jitters. Don't just assume that all RC's are completely fed up with the reforms of the Mass and long for the return of the Latin Liturgy and the overscrupulous theology and morality that, in past accompanied it.  The Popes Summorum document freeing the "old" mass is almost four years old and the number of Latin Masses worldwide has only slightly increased.  There is not as much interest in its restoration of some malcontents would have us believe.  This is proved by the facts I've just stated.  If Catholics were really so enamored by this old rite then would not most churches be overcrowding with people wishing to attend them?  This, so far hasn't happened and I highly doubt that we can except a return to this supposed Catholic Camelot anytime soon.
