Liturgical Dance is So Very, Very Awesome

One of the best things about the liturgical reform of the '60s and '70s was dance, that's right, liturgical dance. Have a gaze at the above infofovideo's distillation of 2000 years of Christian worshiping expression, the best we can offer to God as an act of spiritual sacrifice.

No wonder the liturgical reform succeeded in filling the pews, except that it didn't. Similar, when you think about it, to women priest and bishop figures.

Do you remember how they claimed no one would take us seriously if we didn't ordain women and now gender fluid transsexuals? Said, and continue to say, the dancing bishops and their Mantid friends.

Regardless, this small kebab stand on the *net superhighway is dedicated to uplift as well as being a stealth site for Russian bots to take over our great democracy. So here's a counterbalance, the liturgy of the West.

Europe is the Faith. 

Ignore that at your peril,

That seriously makes my gorge rise.

Adrienne, click on the link at the end. It helps.

The counterbalance (link at the end) is missing so much that the transgender liturgical dance (men pretending to be women and women pretending to be men) brings to the service. Overweight lesbians wearing comfortable shoes are more fun to watch doing the May Pole and their other numbers than the tranny dancers. I don't know why. It just is. It would be better for all concerned if the organ was replaced by a steam calliope (more circus like). Organ grinders and their monkeys could work the cloud for tips. It's more entertaining than passing the plate or bucket for small change.

I'd wager your fighting monkey that would be an improvement on JUST having sexually ambiguous/confused people dancing.

The service is also far more progressive when it involves satanic rituals in the dance, which promised to fill the unfilled pews and bring more cash to the game. Except that it hasn't.

Thank you for this uplifting Sunday Sermonette.

A suggestion - the Cowboy churches offer a full BBQ meal and dispense with the liturgical dance but they do roping, riding, bulldogging, and other entertainments without the requirement that men and women switch genders.

Better to offer genuine Texas BBQ than the organ grinders and monkeys if you want to sell the deal. Jesus takes a back seat to a full belly and some rip roaring entertainment.

Tridentine is the only Mass I attend. I swore off NO quite awhile ago.

I also found Michael Matt's video about the firing of the "gay" and "married" choir peeps who were fired excellent.

Our local NO parish has a homosexual and his "husband" who are in charge of the music for the 10:30 Mass. It's an open secret as to their relationship. Of course, the message is all of this is perfectly acceptable. The priest is even a special friend of the couple and attends parties at their house.

In other areas, the priest is quite conservative - particularly politics. As far as I know, they haven't incorporated liturgical dance (thank God!)

Have a wonderful Septuagesima Sunday, LSP

What has gotten you so riled up about dance?
It is biblically approved, witness Psalm 149:3, or Psalm 150:4, or 2 Samuel 6:14.
May the beat free your soul!

My eyes! Must. Turn. Away. But. Can't.

Wait. Haven't I seen that clip before? It's from a Star Trek episode. This is the beginning of the Pon Farr ceremony.

Well said, Dhimmi! To the beat of the drum.

LSP said...

Thanks for the links, Adrienne. I'll have a gaze and I have to say, the Tridentine Mass has great power. The NO? Not so much, despite the fact that it was supposed to fill the pews and miserably didn't.

LSP said...

That's quite a sermon, LL!

Now I'm not a liturgical expert but I'll calliope monkeys would be a welcome addition to any serious liturgical dance troupe. The, when they die, as they inevitably do, the unfortunate Primates can become floor safes in the parish office.

"Where's the money?" says the would be robber. "Up the monkey," replies the truthful pastor, "Have at it."

I do like a good BBQ.

Infidel, I was nonplussed for a moment then it dawned on me.
