Well, anyone sitting through that isn't Catholic anyway, and that "mass" was invalid. None of those priests believe in God. No one who really believed in God would let that happen in His presence.

@john,
In all fairness, my guess is that the Mass with the priest tossing the football was a children's Mass, with the gimmick intended to keep their attention during a sermon. While I winced and thought it unseemly, I've had to sit through worse (as an adult) gritting my teeth because nothing else was available. Whether it was an 'invalid' Mass is more a function of the words of consecration which were not part of the video.

Remember that Lot was considered a martyr because he had to live with and endure the abominations of Sodom while its daily abominations against God rent that just man's heart.

Peace.

1. John --- This doesn't make the "mass" invalid. Better go read up on the definition of "invalid"

2. This is a children's mass, of course, and the priest tried to reach the children. Sure, he went overboard, but to say he doesn't believe in God is making the World' greatest assumption.

3. The priest would better have used the time to tell the kids why abortion is wrong.

Never quite understood the idea of a "children's Mass". Parents go to Mass.. therefore children go to Mass.. therefore regular plain old Holy Sacrifice of Mass covers it all. I'm sure these priests were applauded for their efforts to evangelize the youth there.. not that it will help them (or their parents) keep the Catholic faith.

The second video is my parish. As much as I dislike it, I'm not sure if it is inherently inappropriate. The congregation for the divine worship and discipline of the sacraments has made a stipulation for cultural reasons. They cute the Ethiopians. I don't know my Vietnamese culture well enough to tell you an answer as to whether or not dance is a big part of our culture.

BOOTY
DUTY

Who dem ladies
Dressed in blue
Standin 'neath
That Prelate's view –

Dancin' round
From east to west
They one up-man-ship
Eucharist.

Did I say man?
I be a mess -
They says they each
A blue-goddess

And all approved
Communioned-Rome
'Cause they know how
To rock Her dome.

Them cassocked boys
They frown and glare
At them there ladies
Feets all bare.

Then bishop smacks
Upside they heads,
"You cassocked boys
Yo' time is deads.

Them bluey gals -
They sure can sell
Approved hand-baskets
Made for...
...well

...just DO like they
Is much behooved
To shake yo booty
And be approved!"
