No offense but thats just pathetic. Why do you feel the need to bash people who want to freely praise their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. What a beautiful idea, to praise and honor God through the wonderful artform of dance. God gave us our bodies just as He gave us our voices...both should be used to praise Him! I don't see dance as any less legitimate than singing. Whoever posted this video was being completely ignorant and closed minded.Posted by Anonymous to Salve Regina at August 12, 2007 9:47:00 PM MDT
Anonymous hails from Plymouth, New Hampshire and entered my blog through a Facebook page, which interestingly enough denounces liturgical dance, (yes, anon, I have sitemeter). I guess anon missed my follow up post called Cardinal Arinze on Liturgical Dance, where the good Cardinal states:
There has never been a document from our Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments saying that dance is approved in the Mass...So all those that want to entertain us -- after Mass, let us go to the parish hall and then you can dance. And then we clap. But when we come to Mass we don't come to clap. We don't come to watch people, to admire people. We want to adore God, to thank Him, to ask Him pardon for our sins, and to ask Him for what we need.Need I say more?
