MahonyFest vs. WesterFest

Liturgy-wise, Bishop Wester's diocese is the much better example, at least in Cathedral worship.

Gerald got hold of some MahonyFest '07 pics. This pics depict what is really an insult to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I won't go any further. Those who read enough of my rants know of the disgust I feel about the Mis-edumacation Congress.

On the other hand, I got to watch the tail end of the installation of Bishop John Wester in Salt Lake City's Cathedral of the Madeleine yesterday on their Intermountain Catholic station. Needless to say, the music was in typical Madeleine fashion - very impressive. I can't wait till it goes up as an "on demand" webcast (you can watch the latest Sunday Mass that way or even subscribe to them at iTunes) and I can watch the whole thing. Unfortunately last night, I only got to hear the closing hymn (Lord, whose love in humble service set to an impressive arrangement of IN BABILONE with brass fanfares a-plenty).

Now, I put it to ya - who's got the better "Fest"? Who would be the better example how to celebrate Holy Mass? Who would be the better example how to lead his flock?

I rest my case.
