Setting: St. Joan's in Minneapolis, May 7, 2006
The formal installation of Fr. Jim DeBruycker as pastor of the infamous church.

Dancing around while Father's got the Lord Jesus Christ in his hands. Funny thing is, my son Brian did two performances on stage over the last two nights, and I thought the scene had looked familiar. Wait, the kids actually did a far better dancing bit. And the kids did their dance in a more suitable environment, the Providence Performing Arts Center.

It appears Fr. DeBruycker is enjoying the show. But what about Bishop Pates, the auxiliary bishop who filled in for Archbishop Flynn? What does he think of this crap? I say borderline heretical, but I'm not a bishop. What do I know? I was only taught to show the utmost reverence to the Blessed Sacrament, not put on a freakin' Broadway act in His presence!

If it were my diocese I would write a letter of complaint to the Archbishop and cc it to the congregation for divine liturgy or whatever it's called. (I'm blanking on the real name.)

I mentioned this on Geralds's site too. I think she's a sign language interpreter. She's probably signing some awful inclusive lyrics, but it might explain the, uh, arms.

I thought at first you wanted us to caption the photo:

"I should have used Preparation H!"

She is directing the choir.

I wouldn't be surprised if the choir dances around like that too.
