    “Why are Polish sisters dancing to Brazilian music?”

    They are probably Brazilian nuns preparing for World Youth Day at Warsaw.

    In my diocese, we have some enclosed nuns. They wear nice habits and … Well, let me tell you two stories.

    Once I was upset because someone had advanced brain cancer and was facing a risky operation. And he was only in his twenties. I phoned the nuns; I guess I was looking for a reassuring word about Divine Providence and an assurance that a holy nun would pray for the guy. But, instead, the nun who answered the phone could only say, “How dreadful, how dreadful”. Yes, a very human response but not noticeably faith-filled.

    Another time, a newspaper was doing a story about women priests. A reporter spoke to one of the holy nuns and asked her views. Her comment was that they were too busy praying to have any view on the matter. So, for my money, their prayer doesn’t seem to have got them to first base when it comes to thinking with the Church.

    Hey, at least they were wearing habits on the beach! Had it been here in the U.S. they might have been in bathing suits! 🙁

    Ten years ago I converted from the episcopal congregation. Put the Real Presence, found only in the Eucharist in the Catholic Church, aside for a minute as I say… The Novus Ordo Mass is EXACTLY THE SAME as the episcopal service in terms of how it’s structured. The only difference is that, at least in the episcopal church I used to attend, the people kneel for communion at an altar rail. Someone totally ignorant of the Real Presence would tell you that there is no difference between a Catholic and episcopal church except for the woman priest thing. I’m thankful that God led me back home to His Holy Catholic Church and I thank him extra for helping me discover the Traditional Latin Mass which I attend pretty much exclusively – I’ve stopped attending daily Mass because the Novus Ordo just doesn’t feel right. Hopefully I’ll live to see the day when the Novus Ordo is abolished once and for all. It makes no sense for a Catholic Mass to copy that of a congregation which was founded so a tyrant king could divorce his wife, kill her, then launch the worst of the reformations against the One True Church of Christ.

    Somehow I wasn’t even surprised to see the Divine Mercy picture being used in their act.

  7. Magdalene says:

    Ugh, they spent valuable time rehearsing all this….

    OOooohh nnooooooooooooooooooooo – that is painful.

    They are the worst – modernists hiding behind traditional habits. There are a group of former sedevacantist religious who returned to the novus ordo (and broken into three or four factions – kind of amazing since there were only 15 of them to begin with) and who have gone from one extreme to the complete opposite extreme theologically (they luv, luv, luv Francers to pieces and bunchers) yet persist in wearing a traditional habit. I’d have more respect for them if they were just honest and shed the trad habit and just wear lay clothes.

    Think this is the sort of religion-worth-saving the crusaders had in mind when they rode into battle?

    Christians en masse have forgotten their dignity.

    This is the norm in a church run by three dollar bills. 3. $. Bills.

    Aaron B., funny you should say that. I can’t explain it, exactly, but even though I once prayed the Divine Mercy Chaplet, I can’t anymore. More accurately, I don’t want to, and even I don’t understand why. I faithfully prayed it in the presence of loved ones who were dying, as the prayers are recommended at that time. Now I don’t want to pray it at all, even the melody of the sung version bothers me. I think it has supplanted the Rosary for many Catholics, and that can’t be good. I may be overdosed on “mercy” given this pontificate. That is a distinct possibility, I spiritually and mentally turn off when I even hear the word now.

    Why are Polish sisters dancing like that at all?

    I had seen that video circulating on Facebook with so many positive comments but I didn’t actually watch it until now.

    Maybe it’s a cultural thing (yeah, right).

    Who are we to judge?

  14. Aaron B. says:

    I wonder sometimes if some in the Novus Ordo see the Divine Mercy devotion as their replacement for the Rosary. I’m not saying it’s bad or invalid; I have no idea about that. But the Rosary is one of the few things that survived unmolested by all the changes of Vatican II (at least until the Luminous Mysteries, which can be ignored), and now the Divine Mercy is getting a big push as a group devotion, even (especially?) in more conservative parishes. I started getting a bad feeling the time a lady told me how great it is, because, “I couldn’t get my son to say the Rosary every day, but he does this because it only takes 6 minutes!”
