So, is this the Direction that my 5:30 Mass is Headed...???

I received this link last night before going to bed, that is why I am posting this in the middle of the afternoon, as I've had better nights sleep after late night viewings of The Exorcist and The Omen. Just trying to spare you all " 'da heeb-a-mee, jeeb-a-mee's" before hitting the rack.

Nice huh?

Some random thoughts/observations:

~Since when have helium filled latex balloons become an adequate substitute for incense?

~How about that music for the Consecration? I mean, why stop there? Why not just get Angus Young up there doing his duck walk while jammin' out "Highway to Hell"?

~The young lady at 2:08 minutes in the video, she seems to be contemplating one of two things, the True Presence or, "...hmmmm, this would be great with some salsa".

~...and how about hearing "Shalom Aleichem" at a Catholic Mass? Can somebody give me an "Oy Vey" ?

~...were those Chasubles tye-die??? Where the heck did he get those? Yasgur's Farm???

This "Mass" was held in Vienna Austria, presided over by Christoph Cardinal Schoenborn their Archbishop. I guess his taste in music parallels his taste in art.

I'm not joking about my 5:30 Mass either.

We have the lousy combo of a weak pastor and an overzealous American Idol wannabe who'd soil his shorts at an opportunity to partake in this sort of performance. Nothing like and enabler meeting up with someone with an agenda.

This is the sort of thing that drives a Church underground...

...last one topside, turn the lights off...

Cardinal S is good as far as Theology is concerned, but a pastoral pushover....the Masses in my area are heading in reverse back to the good 'ol days.

I see we have a new caveman in the cave.

Is it me, or does that bread used in the Mass appear to be leavened?

I could only stand about one minute of it. How did you like those sacred vessels (not), the unleavened bread (not), the alb on the altar girl (not), and not to mention the bad theology that we need to send our petitions to God on helium balloons!

I am speechless. I wanted a bb gun to pop all those stupid ass balloons. Are you kidding me, a Cardinal is such a pushover that he would allow such banal music during the consecration.

You know this is how you know they are trying to tear appart the Church. If they cared not about doing so they would just leave instead of ripping the liturgy to shreds. They don't want to be Catholic, they want to wash away Catholic.

Double Blasphemy!

My advice:

Run, don't walk, to your nearest FSSP, SSPX, ICKSP, et al. And never, and I mean NEVER, look back at the Novus Ordo!

It's Schoenborn--which makes this inexplicable.
