I have been a witness to a lot when the World Youth Day was in Manila...
And now the first sighting in Rio.
Just plain...STUPID for the priest to do this.
Look at that young man on the right.
He too is bewildered why he had to do that!
Hurrah for ACTIVE PARTICIPATION!!!
Continue doing this and you trivialize the role of the ordained ministry with the laity...
Continue doing this and you confuse the youth of what is REALLY RIGHT from what is DOWNRIGHT WRONG.
Way to go in the YEAR OF FAITH.
Yes...Fr. Chupungco when he was still alive, NEVER EVER wrote or spoke against any liturgical abuses...He did speak up against Summorum Pontificum though.
Makes you think...
Why do Chupungcan liturgists like Fr. Geny Diwa and Fr. Reggie Malicdem fear the Traditional Latin Mass so much?
The TLM has no room for liturgical circus like this.
PS: Anyone out there want to ask me WHY this is a liturgical abuse? ;)
