Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
This is just a question: What do you think of the following Catholic Mass?
That wasn't my point. People who are opponents of the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite, or just opponents of the Catholic Church in general, often cite "proof" of clown masses online as a basis for their argument as if they are a common occurrence. From everything I've heard/read, if they exist at all it is a very isolated thing. Other abuses are another thing altogether. If abuses are occurring, the more prudent thing to do, rather than completely writing off the Ordinary Form Mass altogether, would be to speak to the Priest, or to the Bishop of the diocese it is happening in, etc.
What does that matter?
clown massesIn your experience, do these exist outside the world of the internet?
There are a lot of abuses within the "New Mass", just because some are reported on the Internet you're saying it's not true?
And no, I haven't personally attended a "clown mass", but I've seen my share of abuses with my own eyes.
Everyone seems to be having such a good time?
Looks like someone took some Mardi Gras parade puppets and brought them into Mass.. I've also never seen so many older midwest white folks digging interpretative dance
, its really more of A Different World kind of thing
About any other criticisms of this video, well, its just too easy. Can we get back to the more readily discussable Female Eucharistic Ministers? So its just a Papal Infallibility thing so that folks can explain away any conflict with Tradition, or with the Scriptures, or with the Fathers?
I'm glad to see many of the Catholics here are a bit upset about it. I suggest we pray about it, converting the passions of our anger to the Passion of Christ, and let God sort out His own. We couldn't change the Church one way or the other if we wanted to, be it a digression or a restoration, and so that being said, we can only pray for the Grace of God to resonate in the hearts of parish by parish, priest by priest, person by person, until the Kingdom is brought into the world stemming from the unified heart of the Body of Christ.
