More like destructive Mass, as it deformed the Mass that was given to us.
Someone was preaching either the homily or was the psalmist of the Mass. The deacon well.... He is actually sitting on what looks like a box used as a drum, whatever you call that.
During "Ecce Agnus Dei". All three priests remained seated. How comfy!
At least one BRAVE soul dared kneeling! We should get to know this guy!
So it is a Lobby Mass. They get so bored in the chapel or in their World Heritage Site church, they did something "creative". Mass at the lobby of the monastery and using the coffeetable as the "altar". While everyone sits on the floor, except the priests who are obviously more deserving of the seats rather than being on the floor. And what on earth are those behind the priest?!?! Is that supposed to be St. Augustine? Is this a seminary or a kindergarten?
And the coup de grace!
Serve yourself, buffet style Communion! Very common in retreat houses and houses of formation for both priests and religious brothers and sisters!
So this is too boring for them...
Can someone send a note to the Augustinians of Intramuros to stop whatever they are doing. They are MISEDUCATING their seminarians! This is not the way to teach future priests to perform holy acts!
More photos coming soon!
