Bang the Drum Slowly

November 19th, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

More fun at Christ the King:

Perhaps I am misunderstanding: Is the pastor asking the children in the congregation to pick up a rhythm instrument as the enter church and bring it to their pew so they can strike/shake/rattle it during the liturgy?

Christ the King is going to be a very different experience for the people of St. Thomas. Pressure is going to be placed upon the STA and St. Salome parishioners to adapt to CTK’s innovative liturgies, and little to no effort will come from CTK to adapt to these newcomers and make them feel welcome. Similar pressure will be applied to hold hands for the Lord’s Prayer and to no longer kneel for Communion.

In the words of the Borg: “You will be assimilated… resistance is futile.”

    I think you are understanding it correctly, Dr. K. Oh, my. That will be…interesting for everyone involved, but no one will say a thing (and those who do voice their concerns will be labeled as “grumpy,” “old-fashioned,” or “hard-hearted”) because it’s “all about the children and getting them to take ownership of the mass” – note the undercase use of “m” when referring to the Mass. And I say this as a mother with young children.

    More damn silliness! Just goofy!

    And what is going to keep those “joyful noises” from invading the whole Mass? As if parents don’t have enough to do keeping their children focused.

    Very good point! Children made plenty of noise in church as it is. Give them a noisy instrument and imagine the havoc that could occur.

    Contrast this with the beautiful choir music at the last STA Mass and you will know why STA parishioners are petitioning the Vatican to keep their parish!
