Remember the Potato Head Puppet Mass perpetrated by Call To Action in California? Go here, but not on full stomach. And to think a bishop was involved.
BUT WAIT! THERE’s MORE!
I had mentioned in that entry about the Call To Action stupidity, that I had seen years ago a mystery play in the Cathedral of St. Paul by the "Heart of the Beast" giant puppet troop.
Lupus in fabula, here they are again!
At the infamous St. Joan of Arc parish in my home town Minneapolis, one of the weirdest, wackiest, liturgically and doctrinally worst parishes probably on our Mother Gaia, there was a Palm Sunday "liturgy", I am guessing mostly oriented to children.
Behold, the Palm Sunday 2008 Mass at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Minneapolis.
Here is the video which I captured, but it got a little squished:
There may be a problem with the YouTube version.
If you want to get at what they perpetrators think children should absorb from this "liturgy", and you can check your gag reflex for a while, go to about minute 10:20 in the video for a sort of litany of woes.
Remember, how we pray and what we believe have a reciprocal relationship. So, what will all this do to a child’s perception of the Church and himself as a Catholic, over time?
I know that the former Archbishop, H.E. Most Rev. Harry Flynn tooks steps to clean this place up. I suspect that the present Archbishop, H.e. Most Rev. John Nienstedt will have a lot to say to this community of faith. I sure would.
Here are some stills which you can find at Orate Fratres.
“Around the alter, the Last Supper is prepared as the Jesus mimics Father Jim Cassidy as he performs the Consecration and gathers us for the Our Father and exchanging the sign of peace. Singing “Lamb of God” we share in Communion…”
I really hope these people just don’t know any better.
Did you need another reason why Summorum Pontificum is so important?
