Nobody ever does a Black Praise n’ Worship Service with Overhead Projectors, Guitars, Crackers and Grape Juice.
A normal Mass for me involves overhead projectors and banjos. Does this mean I’m safe from the devil?
Not if it’s dueling banjos.. Ha! I Kill Me!
The real question is: does it involve crackers and grape juice instead of the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ.
That was my first thought as well. Add to this that I’m pretty sure about half of the hymns were written by Peter, Paul, and Mary during an “I’m Okay/You’re Okay” fundraising event.
Then again, making fun of your average P&W service with its plastic, desperate-to-be-seen-as-happy vibe, and incessant “Jesus is my boyfriend” songs would be about as much fun as punching a toddler.
Now you see? The great Stephen Colbert would never ever have come up with that.
Nor is there Black Yoga and Brunch (if you want to riff on the Sunday ritual of the modern yuppie…)
There is no link to the article.
Apart from the crackers and grape juice it looks like our Sunday evening youth Mass is off the hook.
Do you go to my parish? 😉
I’m in NH. We just have a mass exactly like that. I guess it’s part of the Tradition, now. :-/
Yes, I’m surprised how often Black Masses are in Latin.

I feel like I may be responsible for all this satire, since I first pointed out last week that Satanists mock the Mass rather than some form of Protestant worship service (though I mentioned a tent revival, not a Praise and Worship service):
But maybe I’m not the only one who noticed that fact.
