Thank God, this kind of thing is dying out




Apparently the priest in this video has a live baby for Christmas Mass every year. Thank God that the showman priests who make the Mass about them and their cleverness are going into retirement. The sooner this kind of silliness dies out the better. Mass shouldn't be cute, irreverent or dumb as dirt. The worship of God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost is not a pageant for kindergartners. Can you imagine St. John Vianney or St. Pio doing this?

Save the living nativity scene and the birthday cake for the church hall after Christmas Mass. Wonder what they do if they have a shrieking baby or do they give the poor kid a dose of barbituate before the Mass?

I think it worse the woman is allowed to hold the chalice.

Deaconesses, no thanks!

However, when I was child, I was in Salvation Army, played a shepherd saying a verse, but for Christ child there was a lamp in the manger.
