SLAP! The price of liturgical inculturation
Nor a street dancing parade.
It was, according to UCANews, the "entrance dance to the thanksgiving Eucharistic celebration on the 150th anniversary of Bengal Mission at St Xavier's College, Kolkata, Nov. 28, 2009." Since when did the Mass have an entrance dance?
Oh yeah I forgot. Since they invented the term "inculturation", through the interpretation of liturgical hobbyists aka frustrated theater directors/producers.
Which entrance procession gives you an impression or leads you to prayer or sets your mood towards a holy and awe-inspiring event?
The one above or the ones below?
Another one for the case files of SLAP (Survivors of Liturgical Abuse in Parishes)
