Hang on to your hats folks. It looks like not much has changed in L.A. under Archbishop Jose Gomez, who took Mahony's place recently. The ridiculous Religious Education Congress is underway again in all of its glory. The first video is the opening ceremony of their Education Congress, complete with liturgical dancers and incense bowls being carried around a square altar as if it is some pagan festival. If you want to save some time, fast forward to about minute 9 of the video. It gets worse as it progresses. I watched to about minute 20 and had enough.
It only gets worse. The second video is the Youth Day Liturgy. Pagan drumming from the Orient begins the Mass along with some pagan chant. Sponge Bob Square Pants makes his appearance in the back. That's right look for him around the 2 minute mark. This almost looks like the Thanksgiving parade on TV. The rock band kicks in shortly after the drum session ends. Then the great conservative Archbishop Gomez appears introducing this as the Holy Mass. How many liturgical laws can you break at one time? Cardinal Mahoney is then introduced and the madness goes on.
Things of interest..
Go to the one hour mark and watch them set up the altar.
1:09 minutes we see the wicker baskets, etc.
1:12 The Consecration.
