THIS ABSOLUTELY ROCKS! Oh yeah.

This is what the Roman Catholic Church needs to return to.

>>> No ferns or fluffy plants on the altar.
>>> No tacky felt banners made by the Liturgical committee.
>>> No Communion in the hand.
>>> No folksy guitar playing lesbos warbling along about Kum-bay-ah in a Joan Baez manner.
>>> No more fruitcake “priests” conducting a comedy show.
>>> Return of the Baptismal Font - not the Baptismal jacuzzi.

etc. etc. etc.

Glad that you posted these pics.

What a great comment. Had me and my husband laughing. We just returned from our old parish (which we still attend for daily mass as it is closer than our new one), and it was all decked out in Better Homes and Gardens Christmas decor. Ugh!

On the positive side, however, they still have a manger scene replete with Jesus to the side of their altar, which is a bit surprising as half of the congregation "still" stands while the other half kneels during the Consecration (something that has been going on for well over a decade). Now, if I can only convince my husband (to skip work!) and take the trip to St. John Cantius for their 6:00 a.m. "daily" Tridentine Mass ...
