How nice. The church of many colours.

But look at the nice vestments! Roman chasuble and pontifical dalmatic (conveniently ignore female acolyte)!

The picture of the lama seemingly praying to Christ oozes of syncretism.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm not sure what the problem is supposed to be here.

Relax people.

It's better than buddha statues upon the altar.

Why is a non-Catholic, non-Christian, not even ordained man "assisting" in choir? It's okay for anyone to assist in choir?

Is he really assisting, though? I'm not saying it is entirely without problem, but it doesn't really seem like a horrible outrage or anything.

I'm not particularly comfortable with this, but it has been known to happen. My TLM has an Orthodox man in the schola. Of course, given the closeness of Orthodoxy and Catholicism and the anonymity of this man's religion it doesn't send the same message as the Dalai Lama in the sanctuary.

He may be sitting in the choir stalls, but it's clear that he wasn't actually assisting in choro, as none of the other people sitting in the stalls are dressed to assit in choro. I know a lot of churches now just let anyone sit in the choir stalls during Mass, as assisting in choro has fallen out of fashion in the Novus Ordo with the advent of concelebration.

I find this picture far more striking:

The story, for the record: (the original is in German, from kath.NET)
kath.net, via Catholic Church Conservation Wrote:Cardinal Schönborn: "A person who is deeply rooted in their own faith, can show deep respect for the faith of others."

The Dalai Lama, contrary to earlier plans, taken part in the Pentecost Mass in Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral. The Archbishop of Vienna, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn said at the beginning of the Mass on Sunday that the Dalai Lama had asked to visit the St. Stephen as a "pilgrim" - in the same way he had visited the Marian shrines of Lourdes and Fatima and also Rome as a pilgrim. "A person who is deeply rooted in their own faith, can show deep respect for the faith of others", said Schönborn.

Schönborn had previously given the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism a tour of the Cathedral. The Dalai Lama placed a white Tibetan prayer shawl in the chapel of St. Barbara, which has been since 1983 a place of remembrance for the victims of the Nazi regime. During the tour through the St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Dalai Lama asked - differently from the originally scheduled program - to attend at least the first part of the service can be. A return flight to India was scheduled for Sunday afternoon. The Dalai Lama has lived there since he fled in 1959 into exile.
