Oh what a wretched day. Archbishop Piero Marini has been removed as the pope’s Master of Ceremonies. MC Piero as we liked to refer to him was such a breath of fresh air in the stodgy Vatican. One had to admire the liberal use he made of inculturation in the mass. I for one think we need to make even greater use of liturgical dancing. The deepest spiritual moment I had in my life was during a liturgical dance. I was doing the "Batusi" one Sunday and was in sheer rapture. It was too bad that Syblyng Joe became partially blind in one eye because of my enthusiastic gestures. But Gaea will count that small sacrifice a great blessing one day.
