Remember… the Traditional Latin Mass is the problem.

Truly a “unique” expression of the Roman Rite.

    Yikes. Wouldn’t allow my family to see that. Also, Fr. Casey has always been a very big Novus Ordo proponent, so the fact that he’s starting to call this stuff out is telling.

    If one were traveling and were attempting to fulfill one’s Mass obligation at an unfamiliar church – and THIS happened – would it be a virtuous – even OBLIGATORY! – to rise from one’s pew and SHOUT down this blasphemous prancing?

  3. I wonder what part of the Mass that’s supposed to be.

    Charlotte: one of them was going up, and down, the steps, so maybe it was the Gradual?

    Ummm… no, probably not.

    Another appeared to be speaking in tongues, given the rapidity. Ummm… maybe not. Or maybe yes. Whatever.

    And they say the TLM used to be raced through?

    That’s not the real Fr. Casey, but a parody account.

    Gee , I just had a flashback to some of the youth Masses I attended as a young adult in the 1980s and 1990s. Even remember standing during the consecration and being on the altar around the table.

    Fortunately over the last 15-20 years I have noticed more clergy (and more weekly Mass attendees) making sure that things like dancing, hand motions (yes I am guilty as charged from my own youth days of this), squirt guns, and even certain hymns (while I do like Christian music and some Christian Rock, certain tunes are more suited for Protestant services) are not part of Mass. Mass shouldn’t be a Christian Rock concert.

    I even remember a young priest in the early 1990s telling our group of liturgical ministers (I was an usher) that Mass was a “show” (yes, this priest who had only been ordained for a year really said this – 1980s style formation I guess). I heard at one parish this particular priest even rode a bicycle at least once during the entrance hymm. About four years of his priestly ministry, he left the priesthood to marry and have children. Today he is now a minister in another denomination.
