Libera Nos, Domine

Now isn't this a good advert for praying for the Motu Proprio? I am not sure if it is a spoof, the Mentos bit I mean, but it is a "real" "Catholic" Mass presided over by Cardinal Mahoney in his Cathedral in Los Angeles. I am a bit shocked that receiving The Body of Christ, at the end is equated with eating a sweet but when the Liturgy is reduced to a cabaret then all becomes trivialised even Holy Communion.

From this nonsense, Good Lord deliver us.

It is thought that the "Mentos" bit is a sacastic comment added by way of soundtrack further to point up that sadly the rest of it is a nonsense of religion.

I am sure I have seen extracts of this Mass before;if anything it is even worse than with the mentos soundtrack, as you say Fr. Lord deliver Us( ps I 'm sure it was a meaningful liturgy)

The book, which looks like a mail order catalouge, is pretty tacky too. Yuk.

Dear Father,

I love reading your blog, and I was wondering if you would be intersted in advertising my Pope Benedict XVI forum, "The Apostolic Palace" in your links section. I just started it a few days ago, and I'm trying to reach out to get some new members. Here is the link so you can have a look and decide if you'd like to.

I noticed that you have the "Benaddiction" banner on your blog that I made. I'm glad you like it! Thanks for taking the time to read this. My email is if you have any questions.

Thanks & God Bless,
