Around these parts, New Year's Day means one thing: The Mummers Parade. The parade has evolved through the ages, kind of like the Novus Ordo. At one time women were banned, now they're not. What's not banned but should be are the antics that take place at the annual Mummers Mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. I think it's a good thing that the parade strutters, many of whom come from a long line of proud tradition, should want a blessing, but why does it have to take place in this manner, at Holy Mass, complete with parasols and the faithful doing the Mummers' Strut down the aisle? Why not leave Mass and do the revelry outside?
Observe the "dancer" at the front of the church behind the priests. I'd be in need of confession if I had personally witnessed this.
You'll never, ever, ever see this kind of abuse at the Traditional Latin Mass.
