Gosh.... suppression of this community is quite imminent! No young (or older) girl will ever join this community; they have lost their identity as Benedictine! How utterly sad, let us pray that they recover this identity, and swiftly!!! Or they will just, as I have said, fade into nothingness.....
These are NOT nuns but New York City style actresses. This dance would be Okay in a theater or in a church basement but not in a Catholic Church. This church does not even look like a Catholic Church. Where are the icons and statues? It could be a Methodist church! While the music is compelling, these are more like vainglorious schoolgirls having a frolic than "real" nuns.
This is pretty sad. Imagine what the Orthodox Church must think when it considers the sad "Protestant" state of the "new" Catholic liturgy? Dance like like belongs in the theater, not incorporated into the liturgy. It is entertainment, pure and simple. No wonder the "new" Catholic Church has empty seminaries and convents! Why be a nun when so called Catholic nuns act and dress and do the same things as everybody else? Catholicism has destroyed its once beautiful liturgy. These so called nuns … [More]
Read St. Pius X on what is allowed as music in the actual liturgy. Then you will find that this type of liturgical dance is not found pleasing to God. You may like what is man made, but as far is God is concerned the ;liturgy is a form of himself worshiping himself perfectly. The Church is the Spouse of our Lord, only she can be worthy of giving worthy praise and when you have stuff like this this does not show a Catholic spirit. Try pulling something like that in an Orthodox Church and if you … [More]
"This is a beautiful expression of the faith of these Sisters. How dare anyone call them such bad names as below. They have given themselves totally to Christ and have done a lot for him. Who are we to judge their worship of their spouse? "
Typical "cafeteria Catholic" You need to snap out of it.
This is a beautiful expression of the faith of these Sisters. How dare anyone call them such bad names as below. They have given themselves totally to Christ and have done a lot for him. Who are we to judge their worship of their spouse?
If I were the Novus-Ordo-Priest, I would have the Benedictine Girls take some new lessons. Have you heard of those new excercise DVDs, How To Strip Your Way To A Healthy Body. I'd enroll those gals in a Strip Tease Class and then have them come back and do it right. And since there is no actual mass, and "we" don't want one anyway, I would have it all end in a live sex orgy on the Altar.
If you think I'm crazy or disconnected here, just read The Guillotine … [More]
What do you expect from the Vatican II Church and the Novus Ordo mass? Since Vatican II there have been masses where the priest has dressed liked a clown and said mass, there have been acrobats on the altar.... it is truly sad that this is happening where we celebrate the sacrifice of the Holy Mass!
though i agree with the silliness of 1973 American worldliness hippies and dislike of this on here, ..i must say this was NOT part of The Mass, but this performance was at a Office of Lauds, as stated "...on Christmas Day during Morning Prayer." still, not very Benedictine. pax
Schon klar. Es ist wichtig, sowas aufzuzeigen. Da gibt es allerdings auch kirchenrechtliche Vorgaben zu.
Die lauten - platt gesagt - kurz formulieren:
Kehr vor der eigenen Haustür.
Konkret heiß das: Sprich deinen Pfarrer an (oder den Geistlichen, bei dem du den Gottesdienst besuchst.) Tu das in Liebe und Wohlwollen für die Person und das Amt des Pfarrers, aber gerecht in der Sache (gemäß dem Prinzip "Liebe den Sünder, und weil du ihn liebst, hasst die Sünde") Wenn er nicht … [More]
1. muss man die Realität anschauen, wie sie ist. (und die Liturgieskandale dominieren heute [leider]) 2. kann man die hässliche Realität der Liturgieskandale (wenn) nur durch das Aufzeigen wegbekommen (der Teufel hasst nichts mehr, als ans Licht gezerrt zu werden).
Call me old fashoned and biased, but in my opinion the lack of traditional habit says it all. Unfortunately a lot of Benedictine nuns opt to go habitless. At least thats how it appears. I loved the orders that have remained unchanged in this area. Sorry but I'm alittle passionate about this.
