"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Questionable liturgical move

There is a link here to a video of a Gospel procession that I think probably should have been considered more carefuly before it was done. (I believe this is a Roman Catholic parish, but it could just as easily been in another denomination.) Liturgical dance with the Gospel book just doesn't work for me. There is a noteworthy use of trumpet, though, so be sure to play the audio as well. (Thanks to Lee Nelson.)

That right there is enough to nip any bout of Roman Fever right in the bud! In just glad the priest didn't break a hip with all the groovy moves he was making.
