How bad can the LA Religious Ed Conference (aka Three Days Of Darkness – 3DOD) be?
The priest involved is one Daniel P Horan, OFM whom the Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) coos over: “Daniel Horan is one of those hip young priests that the new evangelization dreams of”.
Look… I’m all for prudent and reverent stewardship of the “environment”, although I insist that we human beings are part of that “environment” even as we are at its pinacle. Heck, I can echo the Ancient Mariner and say:
Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.
He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.
But that slop in that video borders on impious sentimental omphaloskepsis.
As for Horan, in a video wherein he sets out his version of Amoris laetitia he uses this image as an introduction:
Anyway, scroll with horror through the videos HERE. I had to stop and wash my eyes out with a saline rinse. And not only the eyes, but the ears too! You aging hippies can once again thrill to the strains… Concert celebrating the Liturgical Music of David Haas, Marty Haugen & Michael Joncas!
The moderation queue is ON… that’s for sure!
