Watching the video, I recall my younger days when I would assists priests in village Masses, either in the city slums or in mountain communities. It can get pretty too "creative" with the priests I was with invoking the "Spirit of Vatican 2".
To the GULP and SNAP, there a gazillion liturgical abuses (Ehem. It is creativity not abuse.) committed in this video...WATCH OUT.
Prepare your barf bags! Watch out for the Communion in the Hand. Close your eyes. It's pretty ugly. You would think the priest is just handing out pennies.
In a latest news update, the American Papist, Thomas Peters, reported that the priest in the video was suspended by his bishop. His reader from the Netherlands sent it the following message and I quote:
On Sunday, July 11, father Paul Vlaar, parish priest of St. Victor’s parish in Obdam, celebrated Holy Mass – on the occasion of Soccer World Cup – in an orange chasuble and furthermore using texts and objects which were a violation of the sanctity of the Holy Eucharist.
Such in spite of the promises that the priest made to his Bishop, not to mingle Holy Eucharist with profana.
So the Bishop, mgr. dr. Jozef Punt of Haarlem-Amsterdam, in a meeting with this priest on Thursday, July 15, suspended him. He will immediately leave the parish and is forbidden the administration of the Sacraments.
Well, based on the message, it looks that this priest has a long history with liturgical creativity (shush! it is not abuse! It is creativity!).
Kudos to his bishop for doing what is expected of him. Wish we could have one those bishops here, eh?
Can we expect a similar disciplinary action against Fr. Archie Guiriba and his concert Pentecostal-like Masses?
