The 2010 Diocese of Rochester Chrism Mass

March 31st, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

You just knew that the Diocese of Rochester would not be able to resist defiling Sacred Heart Cathedral once again with liturgical dance. In the above image, liturgical dancer Julian Bell performs during the 2010 Chrism Mass. Reader accounts claim that not only did he “prepare the worship space” (what did he do… fluff the cushion on the episcopal throne?), but he also danced around the altar with the book of Gospels like one Thomas Warfield. When will the diocese stop corrupting our Chrism Mass with this progressive drivel? I think I know the answer to that, and it’s a little more than two years away.

The diocese did not even bother to call this show a “prayer.” Check the Courier Web site; it clearly says “performs.” At least humor us.

Forgive me, but I have to say it: It looks like this person is performing a reenactment of the Karate Kid in the middle of the Cathedral.

    Wax on. Wax off. Maybe that's how he prepared the worship space!

    Looks like a gymnast after a dismount.

    Do you notice how thrilled the congregation is? The all look like they're at their mother's funeral. Maybe they cheered up after the worship place was fully prepared.
