Lord, have mercy upon us!
« on: May 15, 2005, 07:32:39 PM »
Before you visit this link,I must warn you that it is not for the liturgically sound.  This is supposed to be a Gospel Procession.  The video clip is not (to my knowledge), what the liturgical refomers who produced the Novus Ordo had in mind, and this is not to be taken as an accurate reflection of a typical Roman Catholic Mass.  In fact, it would perhaps go unnoticed as such by many Roman catholics.

(It requires Quicktime)

I am experiencing some technical problems, could someone describe the liturgical infractions ?

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I don't know why they even use candles.  Seems like a disco ball would be more appropriate.

Just imagine a cross between a catholic procession and a dance party.

Wow....

um, I don't know whether to laugh or to cry....

I watched it with chris and another classmate... needless to say, there was some sort of momentary stunned silence... our other friend (a reserved Briton) I think is going to need therapy now after the pure shock of seeing this movie...

wow

A line from Apocalypse Now comes to mind:

"The horror....

the horror..."

Count your blessings!

(You may need to install/update Quicktime)

Please accept my apologies for inflicting this on you all.

Wow! I just don't have words to describe this. Looks like these people are trying to blend charismatic style with liturgical worship. I don't think the two are really compatible.

If one wants to be Orthodox, one should seek out a good spiritual director...and Quicktime.

Cannot one Glorify the Church in snappy Real Player?  The Greeks Do. ^-^

And why not in Windows Media?  Is it a mortal sin so to do?  Is it heresy, I ask you? :laugh:

    I didn't see anything Liturgically errant. Did see what appeared to be a congregation singing joyfully to The Lord as The Scriptures were being displayed for the Gospel reading. I'd say its perferable to the many Churches full of "The Frozen choosen" that have plagued the western Church for the past 30 years or so. O0 :-* ;)
