High dosages of vitamin B-16 is really the only cure for this fever.

It is so sad, none of this is about God it is about the people. Look at Mahony, like he is the center of attention. Arrg this makes me sick time to go pray.

Baby, babe, let's get together.
Honey, hon, me and you.
And do the things, ah, do the things
That we like to do.
Do a little dance, Have a little mass,
Get down today.
Get down today.
Do a little dance, Have a little mass, Get down today.
Get down today.
Baby, babe, I'll meet you,
Same place, same time.
Where we can get together
And ease up our mind.
Do a little dance, Have a little mass,
Get down today.
Get down today.
Do a little dance, Have a little mass,
Get down today.
Get down today.

Do a little dance, Have a little mass,
Get down today.

Get down, get down, get down, get down,
Get down today baby.
Get down, get down, get down, get down,
Get down today baby.

The only liturgical dances that makes sense to me are the processional and recessional "line dances" at the beginning and end of mass and the usually well choreographed group dance as we receive communion.

Tom,

Is that something like a Conga Line?

Please,Please,Pleeease, tell me the last picture is not of a Mass. Surely, this is long after the Mass was over and no one wanted to move because one of LA's famous liturgical dancers was losing her clothes-the one to the right of the Cardinal.So, what did they finally do?

Actually, my favorite is the last WHEN it is cropped so that the writing on the wall says "EEK."

Despite the fact that the audience is, like, so completely into it, I had never notice until anonymous pointed it out that one of the dancers was suffering a wardrobe malfunction. What a clever implementation of aggiornamento at a Catholic stadium event!

I am sorry for my lack of charity but ...

Mahony looks like such an anal aperture in this pic.

Is the dopey looking Mahony fixating on the malfunction?
