Italian journalist for Il Giornale and blogger, the worthy Andrea Tornielli needs some help. Here is my translation of his Sacri Palazzi blog entry.
"Vaudeville Masses" , shall we make a list?
Reading some of your comments on the posts dedicated to the Motu Proprio of Benedict XVI to derestrict the old Mass, an old project came back to my mind, for which I would like to ask your help. I’d like to conduct a "census" in some way, with copious documentation (and a pinch of sarcasm), of liturgical abuses perpetrated in our churches. A detailed survey – it could be a book – could, I believe, help understand why there are people who are rediscovering the old liturgy. I am attaching a photo which shows an illusionist in the midst of a trick (the suspension in air of his partner) as the "offertory" during a Mass. Feel like helping me?
Since Tornielli’s blog is in Italian, perhaps you could post your items here and he could pick them up and use them. Otherwise, you could send them directly to him.
