I’ll bet some of you played with Legos when you were young. I’ll bet some of you still play with Legos. I’ll bet some of you played Mass when you were young. I hope none of you are playing Mass now… unless it’s with Legos.
There is now an easier way to play Mass with Legos..
A company called Domestic Church Supply has Legos – real Legos – for Mass.
Being Legos, you can put the priest on the correct side of the altar. Their blurb:
Fr. Leopold is on a mission to share the good news of Jesus Christ with minifigures everywhere. [Father needs a blog.] Sporting his brand new clerics and a friendly face, he is ready to preach the gospel and bring the sacraments to his people.
Featuring 171 genuine LEGO® bricks, three modified bricks (his Roman collar, the sacramentary and the lectionary were printed after they left the factory) and a set of four vestments (a green chasuble for Ordinary Time, red and white for feast days, and purple for Advent and Lent) this set will provide hours of imaginative play. [NO BLACK?!?]
The included 28-page full-color instruction guide makes building the altar, ambo, credence table, presider’s chair [aka sedilia] and tabernacle a snap.
Put the lectionary, sacramentary, chalice, paten, hosts, cruets and lavabo dish in place, get Fr. Leopold vested and he’s ready to celebrate Mass. Congregation not included.
This model isn’t sponsored, authorized or endorsed by the Lego Group. The design, kit assembly and instructions are a Domestic Church Supply Company exclusive.
Because of the limited availability of certain Lego bricks in this set, quantities are limited.
Due to the overwhelming interest in this product, current delivery times are approximately 4-6 weeks from when you place your order.
We are working hard to reduce delivery times, but these sets are hand assembled and take a significant amount of time to put together.
Speaking of playing Mass… check out this great video of 4 year old Thuan’s liturgical style. ALERT: Thuan – at 4 – has more Latin in his Mass than most priests of the Latin Church, but I digress. I especially enjoyed the ministration of the altar boy at about 8:00 onward. He really makes sure that the corporal is on that altar! “Father Thuan” is not into liturgical abuse. He sticks to the book! Note how he corrects the “reader” at the prayers of the faithful.
