From hip and cool priests, deliver us, O Lord!

Deacon Greg finds this cringeworthy story of some crazy German priest who thought it would be genius to celebrate a Star Wars First Communion.

Permit me to just say the following, for the sake of simple dignity, taste, and class: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Reader John Herreid wins the Internet with this comment: “I have altered the Mass. Pray I don’t alter it any further.”

First runner up, also from John: “I find your lack of rubrics disturbing.”

    Giesling-Harlaching Bad. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

      Did anyone else notice that Father Hip is completely gray-haired, and that younger guy behind him can’t keep a straight face ?

    This is in the Munich Archdiocese, I am pretty sure. The capital of formerly-very Catholic (in fact, courageously Catholic) Bavaria. Very sad, but not unexpected.
    The real sorrow is that it was probably one of the most well-attended Masses ever. Even the older ladies I encountered at daily Masses in our parish in Bavaria are probably long gone–I wonder who is going now.
    Ganz schrecklich! (very terrible!) Sehr 70’s-ish!

    Well, he could say to each of the first communicants, “N. I am your father.”

    Hans Kung has taught you well.
