From a reader:
Is it permissible to have a video homily, instead of an actual spoken homily by the priest or deacon? Now the message was from the [b]ishop of ____ and was about the annual sharing appeal, but it took place of the homily and the priest spoke about it while sitting down after the video played. I believe that it was intruding on Mass and it had nothing to do with the Gospel readings of that day.
I cannot see this sort of thing happening in the Extraordinary form of the Mass.
In this vale of tears there are many things to endure, friend. We must toil along doing our very best under the oppression of the world, the flesh and the devil.
That said, were a priest to receive something from the chancery saying “Play the video at all Masses”, that would not exclude the Extraordinary Rite. If the local ordinary says “play this” during the sermon time, unless there is a VERY good reason not to, you play it, Ordinary or Extraordinary Form.
Of course, the priest could then give a sermon, at the risk of endangering patience and, therefore, both collections.
