From a reader…
A priest sings the Final Blessing at Mass in a Disney-like “chant” as follows: “May the blessing of God be upon you, the blessing of The Father and The Son, and may the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Love be with you all your days.” He has the congregation trained to then respond with the exact same words. Then the Deacon says his part, “The Mass is ended…” Is there any point to complaining to the Pastor, then the Bishop, then Rome?
It depends on what you seek to accomplish.
Silly priests will continue to be silly priests.
If he’s doing this, and he is under the age of 40, there’s a chance that reason, logic, and passion might possibly (only possibly) cause him to change his ways.
If he’s over 40 (and I’d guess he’s more in the 55+ range if he’s doing silly stuff like this), there’s little chance of bringing about change.
Fr. Ridiculous might be cowed into complying by a strong bishop, at least when the bishop is around or when he thinks the bishop is looking. That presumes that the bishop is a strong bishop interested in implementing the proper liturgy of the Church. That’s not always a safe assumption to make, sad to say.
Perhaps the best way to go about it is with a smile and a song of your own.
On the way out of church, you might sing this to the priest, using that famous melody of from the best own song from Pinocchio:
When you wish to get my cash
Don’t be hasty, don’t be rash
Do the red words, say the black
It’s all we seek
Silly songs that twist my gut
Only keep my wallet shut
You sound like an aging hack
We’ll see next weeeeek
