Not for the squeamish…

Here is some footage of some women in the US attempting to celebrate Mass. Well, where do I begin? I'll just highlight two things. Note the careful avoidance of ever referring to God as Father or Lord. If it is by the Holy Spirit that we call Jesus 'Lord', perhaps this is more proof (if any were needed) that what is happening here is not of the Holy Spirit. The other thing to notice is the preacher extolling what she calls 'prophetic obedience'; this seems to mean identifying the will of God with what seems to be a good idea to her and her friends. There seem to be a few male concelebrants.
As in the last clip, and for very different reasons, don't look if you are squeamish.

on a more lighthearted note, in the first version of this post, I accidentally uploaded the Aramaic funeral again. Early readers may have been surprised to see it described as a Womynpriest doings.

What is weirdest is that the "ordination" seems to be taking place on the dance floor of the function room of a working men's club.

I don't actually find it as offensive as some liturgies I have attended at Westminster Cathedral, because it is obviously not Catholic and barely Christian.
