*Honk Honk* Amen

The e.mail that came with this shot says it all....

"No, it is not the Los Angeles Cathedral; it is Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City."

Apparently, Guadalupe Basilica has a liturgy every year where circus performers come to pay homage to the tilma.

I think this is wonderful and very sweet, but for anyone who has ever griped about the LA clown mass (and you know who you are), this is your chance to show your objectivity, as opposed to ax-grinding bias. Notes of complaint may be sent to Su Eminenza Senor el Cardenal Norberto Rivera Carrera, Arzobispado, Ciudad de Mexico. Cc Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.

Don't blame Mahony, he had nothing to do with it.

Come off it, Rocco!

This is a Mass FOR circus performers, not BY them!

Rocco,

The rather sacreligious clown mass was actually done at Trinity Church, Wall Street. Click on the link and go to the video cast about 40-45 minutes into it where during the fraction rite, the clown-celebrant breaks the bread, the cymbals clash, and the inmates greet the fraction with kazoos and noisemakers.

I'm fairly confident that the LA Cathedral would not do this.
