Father Z gives us the grisly details about this exercise in sacrilege-by-puppet at the horribly misnamed St. Joan of Arc
Actors and musicians presented Palm Sunday Family Mass with In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre [apt mane] at Saint Joan of Arc Catholic Community in Minneapolis. Christians around the world celebrated Palm Sunday with the story of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, when the crowds waved palm branches.
“Celebrant”? in costume? Who knows. It could be anyone.
Yep, at least the tabernacle is in the center of the … wildlife sanctuary!
It’s the raccoon that does it. No?
Go here to read the rest. You know, I lived through this type of madness once, back in the late Sixties and much of the Seventies. Once in one lifetime was more than enough. I am afraid that we are returning to this type of glop again because some powerful forces within the Church wish to reshape the Church and cannot do so unless there is a sustained attack on the Mass. I recall one veteran priest that I knew back during that time, now among the saints I think, who helped inspire my wife to convert to the Faith and who married us. He told me once that one of his common thoughts when viewing the carnage within the Church was “May God forgive us.” I am finding myself using those words quite a bit in my thoughts lately when contemplating the fact that all the progress made to restore the Church during the pontificates of John Paul II and Benedict XVI can be so easily put in peril.
