When I realized Pope Francis was trying to resuscitate the counterfeit church, I amused myself by wondering whether the salty seahags would try to resurrect 'liturgical dance'.
And sure enough, here's an article revealing they are getting their Stevie Nicks outfits out of the mothballs.
I had a flashback about a local Boston priest who used to dance in the sanctuary wearing leotards.
Any local readers remember him?
I just did a dance piece called "Melodrama." I dance it with another dancer, who's Jesus, and I'm a priest. And the first part is my commentary on going to the Gibson "Passion" and looking away most of the time, and trying to figure out why. Then I segue into other images of Jesus we need to see, for example a comic Jesus. Jesus and I go into a duet to "Make 'Em Laugh" from "Singin' in the Rain," doing all this kind of Three Stooges movement, slipping on banana peels, walking into walls. I bring this up because someone who is Catholic and who heard about the piece was very upset, even hearing that I would do something that could possibly be offensive to Catholic sensibilities, whatever that means.
I bet you didn't realize that the Priestly Fraternity of The Three Stooges began in Boston!
Love this day when Jesus conquers the grave.
Prayers for God's blessings upon each you!
Have a magnificent day celebrating Christ's witness to faithfulness and obedience to God.
