Photos from "Congress"...and funny captions

On its website, "Congress" has lots of photos of this year's youth Mass, but if you click on this post's title you can see the ones that the Curt Jester thinks are the funniest, along with his captions for them.

Now, don't get me wrong. Reaching out to Catholic youth through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is wonderful. But a Mass that is more like an entertainment production is not the best way.

To really reach out to kids, to give them an unforgettable Catholic treasure and something beautiful and awe-inspiring that most of them have never seen or imagined before, try a Tridentine Latin Mass. A low Mass would do just fine, and a high Mass with Gregorian Chant, too. Both would reach out to kids...and reach their souls.

Or even the Novus Ordo celebrated with reverence and according to the norms would do the trick. This, too, unfortunately, young people have rarely seen, if ever.

Though I guess openly homosexual deacon Eric Stoltz didn't like my captions since he left a comment calling us cafeterica Catholics.

Regarding the "chat":

Truly inspiring words from the cardinal.

That was supposed to be sarcastic, by the way. I understand why Pope John Paul the Great called him "Hollywood" ... all PR and no substance whatsoever.

And, one more thing ... THEY RAN OUT OF TIME??? How long did that chat take? Maybe ten minutes, tops?

Seriously, if anyone participated in the discussion, I'd like to know.

The chat lasted from 11:15-12:00 as advertised, and Mahony didn't seem to stray from the positions we already know he holds......so, let's not get all worked up about something we knew going into it beforehand.
