OK - Time to put the trade-mark symbol on MahonyFest™ (er, the Los AHN-ghe-leez Religious Mis-edu-ma-cation Congress) like Argent did on Poncho Ladies™ (er, Roman Catholic Wimmenpriests).
Gerald has pics a-plenty, with all the usuals. Bp. Brown being entertained by liturgical dancers while celebrating Mass in a way-off-color Mass vestment (WAIT! If the vestment is way-off-color, wouldn't it NOT be a Mass vestment?), the usual wicker baskets and KoolAid pitchers.
The American Papist has news a-plenty, including an FAQ session (er, "online chat") with Cdl. Mahony, and plenty of support for dissent from the Church.
Teri: Is there high hope for married priests? What is that status on having the option?
CardinalMahony: Teri: At this time, the Pope is not moving towards married priests for the Latin Catholic Church. Recall that the Eastern Catholic Church has had married priests for 2,000 years.
Alexis: Is their anything against the Catholic church being more fun? I mean the priest talks and kids don't pay attention so couldn't we sing and dance, and make it more like gospel churches do, so kids will want to participate? I was just wondering if that was against our faith?
CardinalMahony: Alexis: Sounds good to me! Our parishes need to offer a variety of liturgies which appeal to different age groups and to different likes. Youth Masses with groups such as Life Teen are really helpful!
Gotta love how the Cardinal downplays the Church's stance on married priests and how Mass should be "fun", eh?
