Every parish I have been to has. My favorite was the Priest on Pentecost who had these two little boys in tight short shorts waving streamers dance around him while he swayed side to side carrying an incense "bowl" all to the musical tune of Cat Stevens Morning Has Broken. It was great made me proud to be Catholic.

I have been to several N.O. Masses, and in each one of them, even the ones that some people would call "reverent," several abuses occurred.  Let's not forget that a Protestant supper table is a sacrilegious abuse, as are women speaking in Church, altar girls and "Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers (EEMs).  There hasn't been one N.O. Mass that I have attended that didn't have those things present.  The ones with clowns, balloons, people dancing in the isles and the priests doing the limbo are just obviously more over the top, but the abuses are still present in the most "reverent" of N.O. Masses.  This is due to the very foundation of the N.O. Mass itself, which removed certain essentials from the true Mass and allowed it to become Protestant worship, which is the biggest sacrilege of them all.

I'm a traditional Catholic, too...let me tell you what's going on in the Catholic hospital where I work.

The hospital has just completed a brand-new, state of the art hospital, after 92 years of being in the same old building. The hospital is lovely, and the chapel actually has a crucifix in it (wonder of wonders). The altar, though?

I was hoping our bishop could come and consecrate the altar. I asked one of our chaplains, and he said that since the chapel would be being used by "all faiths," the altar would not be consecrated, but merely only blessed.

I cannot tell you how horrified I was. Even though it's a Novus Ordo hospital. Even our current chapel reserves the Blessed Sacrament [sic]. This new one doesn't. It has to be usable by all faiths.

Extra ecclesiam nullam salus...

Anyway, Rome seems to be content to let +Schoenborn run wild AND be responsible for hosting the ecumenical dialogue with the Orthodox.  I wonder if he showed them his porno collection in the Barbarakapelle by advant garde gay communist, Hrdlika?

The same Schonborn is responsible for this abomination of a "Mass"...see how far into the video you can get.



The part where he prepares "Communion" makes me cringe every time. Thankfully, the matter was invalid and Our Lord didn't have to be treated with this sort of disrespect.

Why is this man not excommunicated?!

That was sick. Thank God I am not in "perfect" communion with that shite. Schoenborn should be beaten with sticks. Or many many balloons.

Well, I see that Indian fry bread and mashed potatoes were on the menu. What an idiot.

Im willing to believe that may have been an accident; ie Cardinal Ratzinger didnt know who the man in the wheel chair was.

Perhaps he was overenthused, misbelieving that Brother Roger had decided to become Catholic?

In longing for the serene inaccessibility  of the Papacy of old where people, even non-Catholics were more or less well-informed about what the Church teaches, perhaps we're expecting too much?

It is something for which there was no explanation, however, and it seems to have deserved one.  I've seen Anglicans and others go to Holy Communion and even seen priests say, thinking I was out of earshot that it doesn't matter.

A real tragedy and a sign of the times that so many who've been entrusted to guard the thesaurus of the Catholic Faith leave those of us who've learned to expect more in a state of almost perpetual scandal. Kyrie Eleison!

And +Schoenborn's Rock "music" didn't Rock.

Or, that Ratzinger might have thought he would have known better to not come up if he isnt Catholic.  So then perhaps he assumed that he had indeed converted.  I dont know, I feel like this one is forgivable, as I can see where there might be some confusion.
